maplist

Map projection support for map axes and map projection structures

Syntax

list = maplist
[list,defproj] = maplist

Description

list = maplist returns a structure that lists the IDs and classifications of map projections for use with map axes and map projection structures. The structure list contains the fields Name, IdString, Classification, and ClassCode. The maps and axesmui functions use the structure when processing map projection identifiers during operation of the toolbox functions.

[list,defproj] = maplist also returns the default projection's IdString.

list.Name defines the full name of the projection. This entry is used in the command-line table display and in the Projection Control Box.

list.IdString provides the name of the MATLAB® function that computes the projection.

list.Classification defines the projection classification that is used in the command-line table display.

list.ClassCode defines the character vector that is used to label the classes of projections in the Projection Control Box. The eight class codes are

  • Azim — Azimuthal

  • Coni — Conic

  • Cyln — Cylindrical

  • Mazi — Modified azimuthal

  • Pazi — Pseudoazimuthal

  • Pcon — Pseudoconic

  • Pcy — Pseudocylindrical

  • Poly — Polyconic
