Plotting winds with quiver functions

10 views (last 30 days)
I am using the quiverm function on a map of the world and have wind data.
Ideally I want to know whether it is possible to plot arrows of the quiver function as wind barbs? That or I need to be able to plot a legend with the magnitude of the wind as the size of an arrow?
So basically my aim is to show the magnitude of my winds, rather than just a few arrows, that could be 0.1 10 or 100m/s
Does anyone know how to do this, as I cannot find anything related to this on the matlab documentation?

Alternatively, quivermc is an adapted version of ncquiverref with different plotting options.
