camtargm

Set camera target for axesm-based map using geographic coordinates

Syntax

camtargm(lat,long,alt)
[x,y,z] = camtargm(lat,long,alt)

Description

camtargm(lat,long,alt) sets the axes CameraTarget property of the current axesm-based map to the position specified in geographic coordinates. The inputs lat and long are assumed to be in the angle units of the current axesm-based map.

[x,y,z] = camtargm(lat,long,alt) returns the camera target in the projected Cartesian coordinate system.

Examples

Look down the spine of the Andes from a location three Earth radii above the surface.
