I am the applications engineer that supports the Mapping Toolbox
for the MathWorks. In the latest release of this toolbox, we made the decision to no longer provide worldwide political boundary data with the product because the world is a changing place and we do not want to be in the data providing business.
One of the developers of the toolbox, Kelly, has recently posted a new file, WORLDMAPADATA
, that acts as a wrapper to feed the appropriate data to the older WORLDMAP function. This file will make the transition path much easier by providing the data sets that are no longer in the official product.
I like this function because it fills a need of many of our more veteran users.
