The mean in the accumarray exceeds the maximum value in the array, which it shouldn't.

Please find the link for the code: THE LINK
In this particular code, the mean exceeds the maximum value in the array, which it shouldn't. What is the other approach? For example i have values between [0 1]. But the mean values are sometimes 1.5.

Please attach the data which is producing this result in a .mat file. Also, please post the code you are actually running to generate the result, not the summary of it at the link.

I am not able to reproduce this behavior on my Windows machine running release R2018b. Can you show the result of this code?
rng default
npt = 10000;
A = [rand(npt,1)*180-90 rand(npt,1)*360-180 rand(npt,1)];
latbin = -90:5:90;
lonbin = -180:5:180;
nlat = length(latbin);
nlon = length(lonbin);
ilat = discretize(A(:,1), latbin);
ilon = discretize(A(:,2), lonbin);
idx = sub2ind([nlat nlon], ilat, ilon);
altg = accumarray(idx, A(:,3), [nlat*nlon 1], @(x) mean(x), NaN);
anyValuesInAltgGreaterThan1 = any(altg(:) > 1)
maximumValueInAltg = max(altg(:))
If that code is not sufficient to reproduce the behavior, please post code with which you can along with information about which OS you're using and which release of MATLAB.
And just because I'm suspicious, can you post the output of this command as well?
which -all mean
