Hi all,
I have the following polygon, which should represent the borders of Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxemburg.
I am however not able to plot these using Matlab on top of an imagesc. Can anyone help me? The file is in attachment.
T=shaperead('BENELUX_POLYGON.shp','usegeo', true);
Thanks already

Hi Yoni ,
shaperead only Read vector features and attributes from shapefile, it won't plot those data.
To plot those shapefile you need to use mapshow. I tried this on my end :
T=shaperead('BENELUX_POLYGON.shp','usegeo', true);
mapshow(T)
and I got the following result :
