Vector Map Display
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.
This example shows how to create a map from vector data that contains connected line segments and closed polygons.
The following table lists the available Mapping Toolbox™ patch polygon display functions.
Raster Map Display
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.
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.
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.
