Set Tag property of objects on axesm-based map



    tagm(obj,tagstr) sets the Tag property of the objects in obj to the values in tagstr.

    The namem and handlem functions use the Tag property to identify objects on axesm-based maps.

    • To use the same tag for all the objects in obj, specify tagstr as a character vector or a string scalar.
