Display Maps Using axesm-Based Maps

Change Projection of axesm-Based Maps

  • Switch Between Projections
    You can change the map projection. Usually the new map projection displays the same part of the world, and you can adjust the axesm-based map properties to refine the map appearance.
  • Reprojection of Graphics Objects
    Many objects on axesm-based maps can be automatically reprojected based on changes to the map projection or to some map properties.
  • Change Map Projections Using geoshow
    You can display geospatial data on a regular axes, not an axesm-based map, using a linear mapping of longitude and latitude to x- and y-coordinates.
