– Provides a compact and easy way to generate animations from flight simulation data.
– Encapsulates and concentrates individual 3D rendering functions into a single function to provide a clean and concrete interface.
– Provides background information and a coding guide about how to generate animations in a Matlab environment.
The coding guide also teaches you about how to build your own customized visualization based on the code in this package.
