A Year with the new MATLAB Live Editor

The MATLAB Live Editor was introduced about a year ago providing an elegant way to create, edit and run MATLAB code. Using the new editor the results of a MATLAB script are displayed together with the code that produced them. A Live Script can include equations, images, hyperlinks and formatted text, to be shared with others as an interactive document, as the webpage of MathWorks suggests.

New Master’s Degree Program at the University of Potsdam, Part 2

On 23 March we announced the new English-language master’s degree program “Remote Sensing, geoInformation and Visualization” (RSIV) at the University of Potsdam. We now have a timeline for the application process, the requirements to be accepted as a student of RSIV and the course concept (see table). Continue reading “New Master’s Degree Program at the University of Potsdam, Part 2”

MATLAB Does ‘Some Optimization’ When Drawing Line Vertices, Support Says

While working on the 2nd edition of MDRES we noticed that the number of vertices of the coastline polygon of the GSHHG example described in an earlier post did not have the 28033 vertices as expected from the original data set. The number of vertices, as counted by vector graphics software such as Adobe Illustrator CC 2017 was 14398 instead. This was a surprise and important enough to write this note to the readers of both the MRES and MDRES book. Continue reading “MATLAB Does ‘Some Optimization’ When Drawing Line Vertices, Support Says”
