Do you plot Earth-orbiting trajectories? Would you like to know how your orbit compares to the size of the Earth? If so, EARTH_SPHERE will help get you there.
This function is a modification of the built-in MATLAB command SPHERE. Rather than producing a sphere with a radius of 1, the radius of the sphere will equal that of the Earth. The user may specify the units they want to plot in: meters, kilometers, feet, miles, nautical...
By entering the appropriate orbital elements, you can plot the orbit around a 3D view of Earth. The funcion also allows for click-and-drag camera manipulation. You can also do a fly-by.

DRAWEARTHSHADED Draws a shaded map of the Earth
DRAWEARTHSHADED Draw a map of the earth, with a realistic set of
colors. This can be used as a background for any map plot you wish.
It is important to note that the...
LAT_LON_PROPORTIONS Scales a plot in latitude & longitude axis to
meters. It will compress the x axis by cos(latitude) in order to
reflect the relationship between a degree latitude and a degree
longitude at the center of the...
This book is about data in the earth sciences: its nature, its graphic representation, and its numerical analysis.

Earth albedo is the sunlight reflected off the Earth's surface. The Earth albedo induces power in solar cells on spacecrafts just like direct sunlight. The Earth Albedo Toolbox may be used to calculate the amount of Earth albedo arriving at an...

Example of creating a 3D textured Earth globe.
This spacecraft begins in a GTO and spirals out of Earth's SOI, then orbits around the sun and spirals in to Mars. This model uses ODE23 to integrate a 4-body gravitational model including a forcing function. The engine has an Isp of 3000 sec and...
