Map Viewer

View and explore data in map coordinates


The Map Viewer app enables you to view geospatial data in map (x-y) coordinates. The Map Viewer works with vector, image, and raster data grids in a map coordinate system. You can pan and zoom on the map, specify the map scale of your screen display, and control the order, visibility, and symbolization of map layers. In addition, you can add annotations to your map and click to learn more about individual vector features.

Open the Map Viewer App

  • MATLAB® Toolstrip: Open the Apps tab, under Image Processing and Computer Vision, click the app icon.

  • MATLAB command prompt: Enter mapview.
