Visualize data on maps
Visualize latitude and longitude data over interactive maps using geographic plots. Create line, scatter, point density, and bubble plots over maps by specifying coordinates, and customize the map imagery using basemaps.
Plot Geographic Data
|GeographicAxes Properties||Control geographic axes appearance and behavior|
|GeographicBubbleChart Properties||Control geographic bubble chart appearance and behavior|
|GeographicRuler Properties||Control appearance and behavior of axis with geographic values|
|GeographicScalebar Properties||Control appearance and behavior of scale bar in geographic axes|
|DensityPlot Properties||Control appearance and behavior of density plot|
- Create Maps Using Latitude and Longitude Data
If you have data that is associated with specific geographic locations, use a geographic axes or chart to visualize your data on a map and provide visual context.
- Pan and Zoom Behavior in Geographic Axes and Charts
The geographic axes and charts plot data over a map. You can pan and zoom in and out on the map.
- Specify Map Limits with Geographic Axes
You can change the latitude and longitude limits of the map in a geographic axes or chart programmatically using the
- Customize Layout of Geographic Axes
Customize the layout of a geographic axes by modifying its properties.
- Access Basemaps for Geographic Axes and Charts
Geographic axes and charts plot data over a basemap. You can download some of these basemaps and install them on your local system.
Geographic Bubble Charts
Geographic Density Plots
- View Cyclone Track Data in Geographic Density Plot
This example shows how to view cyclone tracking data in a geographic density plot.
- View Density of Cellular Tower Placement
This example shows how to use a geographic density plot to view the density of cellular tower placement in California.
- Deploy Geographic Axes and Charts
You can deploy a MATLAB® application that uses a geographic axes or chart.
