WORLDDATAMAP wraps the Mapping Toolbox function WORLDMAP (version 2.1 and higher) and adds data to the map. The data may consist of vector data from shapefiles or surface data from a regular data grid. The displayed vector data depicts boundaries for regions, major lakes and rivers, locations of major cities, and if available in the shapefile, region labels.
