Extract matrix subset based on latitude and longitude
5 views (last 30 days)
I have a matrix of data and want to extract various subsets (0.5 degree grids) based on latitude and longitude. My file is not one that I downloaded from NASA, ect...
I have been trying to use "find" where latitude and longitude are columns 1 & 2 of the matrix "all_time":
x=all_time(:,3:15);% tem=find(all_time(:,1)<27.5 & all_time(:,1)>28.0 & all_time(:,2)<-79 & all_time(:,2)>-78.5); box1=x(tem);
I am trying to extract boxes of 0.5 by 0.5 degrees for all the variables in columns 3 to 15 of the matrix. My box1 is an empty matrix.

These conditions are contradictory:
all_time(:,1)<27.5 & all_time(:,1)>28.0
None of your values could be below 27.5 and above 28 at the same time. I suppose you meant to flip those comparators as:
all_time(:,1)>27.5 & all_time(:,1)<28.0
Also, tem will contain the rows satisfying your longitude and latitude conditions. If you'd like to extract all columns of x corresponding to those rows, you'd index like this:
Hope this helps.
