This is a general-purpose array editor, developed using GUIDE.
It is called OceanMap because of the purpose for which I designed it. You may wish to change the name.
If necessary, you should find it easy to make the function return the output matrix rather than saving it to a .MAT file.
- The number of rows and columns can be updated actively, without losing data already contained in the matrix
- You should call OceanMap from the command line, as clicking on the .fig file doesnt work: The ActiveX FlexArray doesn't initialise.
- Currently, Multidimensional Arrays are not supported... I'd be pleased to hear if anyone modifies the software for extra dimensions.
- The output matrix DOES NOT CONTAIN row and column numbers, although it wouldn't be a lot of effort to make it do so.
OceanMap was originally created for the purpose of tracking a submersible vehicle using a grid painted onto the floor of a water tank. Technicians use it to input the grid pattern and convert it to matrix form.
A separate piece of software compares the matrix from OceanMap to numbers seen by an on-board camera to compile the track of the submersible.
