Antarctic Mapping Tools
Updated 17 Sep 2021
Click on the Examples Tab ^^^ for detailed descriptions of AMT functions.
This toolbox is for importing, analyzing, and displaying Antarctica-related data. AMT is designed to provide a standard framework to allow easy pairing of multiple different types of data sets (surface elevation, ice velocity, grounding line, etc). For a quick overview, check the Examples tab on this page and click "AMT Getting Started". To find data-specific plugins for this toolbox, search the File Exchange site for "AMT".
Note to users: AMT was originally written to be used with Matlab's Mapping Toolbox. However, Matlab's Mapping Toolbox is sometimes inefficient and difficult to work with. And depending on Matlab's Mapping Toolbox makes it harder to share codes. So I've been moving more toward plotting mostly in polar stereographic meters. There is a suite of functions ending in "ps" that make this easy.
