Error using satellite Basemap in geoplot-function

28 views (last 30 days)
Hey community,
I simply want to display my latitude / longitude data on a satellite map:
geoplot(lat,lon)
geobasemap satellite
It works fine on my pc at home. However, at work I get the error message:
Error using geoplot (line 98)
Expected Basemap to match one of these values:
'darkwater', 'grayland', 'bluegreen', 'grayterrain', 'colorterrain', 'landcover', 'none'
The input, 'satellite', did not match any of the valid values.
I tried some other options to change the basemap but none is working:
set(groot,'defaultGeoaxesBasemap','satellite')
geoaxes('Basemap','satellite')
The siteviewer works fine with the satellite map anyway... Any suggestions?

If you are using R2019a or older at work, MATLAB will not recognize the new basemap options like 'satellite'.
When the geobasemap/geoplot functions were first introduced (R2018b), only the options you listed were available --- then 'satellite', 'topographic', 'streets', 'streets-dark', and 'streets-light' basemaps were introduced in a more recent version (R2019b).
