cities, a dataset directory which contains sets of data defining groups of cities.

florida_cvt_geo, MATLAB codes which explore the creation of a centroidal Voronoi Tessellation (CVT) of the state of Florida, based solely on geometric considerations.

Examples and Tests:

CHESAPEAKE_BAY is an example from the Mapping Toolbox User's Guide, which draws the states around the Chesapeake Bay area.

FLORIDA_OUTLINE draws a map of the outline of Florida (no cities, no rivers, no neighboring states).

FLORIDA_SAMPLE draws a map of the outline of Florida, and then samples 100 points at random within that outline, using the polygonal representation of the state.

FLORIDA_VORONOI shows how, with a little work, MATLAB's lazy voronoi() command can be tricked into drawing a reasonable Voronoi diagram over a map of Florida created with the Mapping Toolbox.
