Data visualization plays an essential role in conveying complex relationships in real-world physical systems. As geoscience and atmospheric data quantities and data sources have increased, so, too, have the corresponding capabilities in MATLAB and Mapping Toolbox for analyze and visualize them. The talk will present end-to-end geospatial analysis workflows, from data access to visualization to publication. The talk will include software demonstrations of how to process and visualize large out-of-memory data, including accessing remote and cloud-based file systems; working with multiple data formats and sources, such as Web Map Service (WMS), for visualizing of publicly accessible geospatial information; and applying new 2-D and 3-D high resolution mapping visualizations. MATLAB live notebooks combining code, pictures, graphics, and equations will show the use of interactive notebooks for capturing, teaching, and research sharing.
