Mapping Toolbox provides visualization functions and an app for producing customized 2D and 3D map displays. The map displays can be simple or sophisticated, and can be tuned to your application. You can readily combine raster and vector data sets of different scales in the same display. For example, you can display images and data grids in their correct positions—regardless of resolution or area covered—and then overlay vector map features.
With the visualization functions in the toolbox, you can:
Map displays can be defined, customized, and annotated in a variety of ways. You can:
Plotting a 3D Dome as a Mesh Over a Globe
Combining a 3D feature in a system of coordinates with a globe display.
Function-level access to map display capabilities in the toolbox enables automatic creation of frequently used map displays. For example, you can use batch mode processing to examine a geospatial time-series data set and create an animated display that shows how the data changes over time. Functionality in MATLAB enables you to save animated map figures to a movie or GIF file.
