Hi all,
I have a set of rectangular's coord (Xmin,Xmax,Ymin,Ymax) in UTM coord. Could you please tell me how to create a rectangular (or polygon) shapefile based on those coordinates? Thank you in advance.

Xmin = 0. ; Xmax = 1. ;
Ymin = 0. ; Ymax = 1. ;
x = [0 1 1 0] ;
y = [0 0 1 1] ;
Data.Geometry = 'Polygon' ;
Data.X = x ; % latitude
Data.Y = y ; % longitude
Data.Name = 'Rectangle' ; % some random attribute/ name
shapewrite(Data, 'myfile.shp')
p = shaperead('myfile.shp')

Hello, I am experiencing similar difficulty. Would either of you know how to plot lat/long points from a single csv file that contains a X , Y, and 3 other variables? Once plotted, I would like to save it as a shapfile with the output in UTM hopefully. -Brittany
