Vector Map Display
- Display Vector Data as Points and Lines
This example shows how to display vector data as discrete points, and how to connect points with a great circle track and a rhumb line track.
- Display Vector Data as Lines and Patches
This example shows how to create a map from vector data that contains connected line segments and closed polygons.
- Summary of Polygon Display Functions
This topic lists the available Mapping Toolbox™ patch and polygon display functions.
Raster Map Display
- Types of Data Grids and Raster Display Functions
You can display regular and geolocated data grids in many ways, such as a 2-D indexed image where color represents the data value, or as a 3-D surface with light shading.
- Fit Gridded Data to the Graticule
A graticule is a grid of meridians and parallels used to guide the placement of features on a map. Using a finer graticule can give greater precision at the cost of more effort and time.
- Create 3-D Displays with Raster Data
This example shows how to create a 3-D display of raster data, where the z-coordinate represents the data values. Change the viewpoint to get the appearance of depth in the map.
