I tried create a lambertian map using with map_m package by the following way:
clim5=reshape(clim3,[464,201]); # where clim3(93264,1)
m_proj('lambert','lon',[-40.375 75.375],'lat',[25.375 75.375]);
m_coast('patch',[1 .85 .7]);
but I got the following map (attached). I do not know what I did wrong. Could someone write me how I can create a correct lambertian colormap from my data? Thank you for your help in advance!

"lambertian" is a fun new word... :-)
What you're seeing is just the block outline of all the grid cells; by default, all Matlab pcolor plots (including those generated by m_pcolor) use this style. You can remove the outlines via:
set(findobj('tag', 'm_pcolor'), 'edgecolor', 'none');
(In non-m_map plots, you could use the shading flat shortcut, but I find that doesn't always play nicely with m_map objects).
