colorbarps places a horizontal colorbar in the lower left corner of a

map of Antarctica.

Syntax

colorbarps
colorbarps('PropertyName',PropertyValue,...)
h = colorbarps(...)

Description

colorbarps places a horizontal colorbar in the lower left corner of the current axes. Its placement is intended to avoid covering any permanent ice in a standard map of Antarctica.

colorbarps('PropertyName',PropertyValue,...) specifies any colorbar properties.

h = colorbarps(...) returns a handle of the colorbar.

Example 1

Place a simple colorbar.

figure
antbounds % draws an outline of the continent
colorbarps

Example 2

This example uses the ITS_LIVE velocity dataset and we'll do some fancy formatting.

figure

% Plot velocity:
itslive_imagesc('v')

% Place a colorbar:
h = colorbarps;

Remove the axes and set the color axis to a log scale.

axis off
set(gca,'colorscale','log')
caxis([1 1000])

Label the colorbar and make its axes and text red:

xlabel(h,'velocity (m/yr)')
h.Color = 'r';
