MODIS Mosaic of Antarctica
Updated 9 Aug 2021
Two functions for Antarctic Mapping Tools: modismoa plots a MODIS Mosaic of Antarctica image using Matlab's Mapping Toolbox and modismoaps does the same thing but does NOT require any special toolbox licenses.

Added live scripts
Added modismoaps to get around dependency on Matlab's Mapping Toolbox.
Included freezeColors as a subfunction.
Changed pcolorm plotting to geoshow because geoshow is faster and does not shift data by half a pixel. Also added an example to the example file.
Fixed a typo in the example file.
Updated to include MOA2009 and options for display contrast. Behavior change: by default, 2009 data are now plotted unless 2004 is specified.
The modismoa function is now a plugin for the Antarctic Mapping Tools package.
Example file edits.
