I would like to plot an animal movement track (with the variable expressed in meters around a (0,0) origin) over a satellite or coastal map of andvord bay in the West Antarctic Peninsula. I have the lat/long of the geo track origin point, but need to find the best way to upload a map as the background, and accurately place and scale the data. I have looked into the M-map toolbox, but am open to trying any other functions or packages people may recommend. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated!

you can use plotm to plot lat,long data onto a map axis.
But there is a file exchange file that is optimized for plotting data in Antartica:
Also to make a map, you can use a geotiff if you have that.
