MATLAB Planisphere 1

Posted by Jiro Doke,

Jiro's pick this week is Looking Up by Matt Tearle.

Some of you may know my fellow MathWorker, Matt, from other parts of MATLAB Central, especially from MATLAB Answers. Today, I'd like to highlight one of his cool MATLAB Apps that he created just recently. BTW, stay tuned for a post on MATLAB Apps on Loren's Art of MATLAB blog. Apps are one of the new features of R2012b.

Getting an app is as easy as finding an app, downloading the app,

and installing the app.

Matt's app is a MATLAB planisphere. Punch in your location and enjoy the view of the sky, even on a cloudy day! You need R2012b or newer to install this app.

One of the nice things about MATLAB Apps is that it allows you to package all the necessary files into a single installer file. Matt's app consists of many helper functions, custom data types, and a data file, and they're all included in the single downloadable file.


Let us know what you think here or leave a comment for Matt.
