Mapping Toolbox 2

Mapping Toolbox 2, which, according to its publisher, “provides a comprehensive set of functions and graphical user interfaces for building map displays and performing geospatial data analysis in MATLAB,” was released this week (via MacNN). (I keep track of software announcements largely because I don’t know anything about them, not because I’ve sold out. I’d love it if people could explain, in the comments, what sorts of things people use these software packages to do.)
