Geoplot map low resolution

Asked by Joseph Pierre on 10 Jun 2019
Latest activity Answered by Hiro Yoshino on 23 Aug 2019
I'm using geobubble (along with geoplot, geobasemap, etc...) to model dynamics at a city scale. The map appears but the resolution is so low that we can't even recognize the city. Are there ways to import a map of higher quality into matlab to improve my figure, without having to buy the Mapping Toolbox?

How about using maps provided by third parties?
The one provided by "open street map" worked well for me in terms of resolution. (find the attached file please.)
name = 'openstreetmap';
url = 'a.tile.openstreetmap.org';
copyright = char(uint8(169));
attribution = copyright + "OpenStreetMap contributors";
displayName = 'Open Street Map';
addCustomBasemap(name,url,'Attribution',attribution,'DisplayName',displayName)
This script adds "open street map" to your geobasemap.
Once you run this, you'll get a new list of base maps to choose from - that has the open street map in itself.
You can change the base map by
geobasemap("opensteetmap");
