# show

Show site in Site Viewer

## Syntax

``show(site)``
``show(site,Name,Value)``

## Description

example

````show(site)` displays the location of the specified transmitter or receiver site using a marker in the current Site Viewer.```
````show(site,Name,Value)` displays `site` with additional options specified by one or more name-value arguments.```

## Examples

collapse all

Create a transmitter site. By default, receiver sites use geographic coordinates. Specify the latitude as `42.3001` degrees and the longitude as `-71.3504` degrees.

```rx = rxsite(Name="MathWorks Apple Hill", ... Latitude=42.3001,Longitude=-71.3504);```

Display the receiver site.

`show(rx)`

Create and show a transmitter site.

```tx = txsite('Name','MathWorks Apple Hill',... 'Latitude',42.3001, ... 'Longitude',-71.3504); show(tx)```

Hide the transmitter site.

`hide(tx)`

Import and view an STL file. The file models a small conference room with one table and four chairs.

`viewer = siteviewer('SceneModel','conferenceroom.stl');`

Create a transmitter site near the upper corner of the room and a receiver site above the table. Specify the position using Cartesian coordinates in meters. Then, visualize the sites.

```tx = txsite('cartesian', ... 'AntennaPosition',[-1.46; -1.42; 2.1]); rx = rxsite('cartesian', ... 'AntennaPosition',[0.3; 0.3; 0.85]); show(tx) show(rx)```

Pan by left-clicking, zoom by right-clicking or by using the scroll wheel, and rotate the visualization by clicking the middle button and dragging or by pressing Ctrl and left-clicking and dragging.

Hide the sites.

```hide(tx) hide(rx)```

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Transmitter or receiver site, specified as a `txsite` or `rxsite` object or an array of `txsite` or `rxsite` objects.

### Name-Value Arguments

Specify optional pairs of arguments as `Name1=Value1,...,NameN=ValueN`, where `Name` is the argument name and `Value` is the corresponding value. Name-value arguments must appear after other arguments, but the order of the pairs does not matter.

Before R2021a, use commas to separate each name and value, and enclose `Name` in quotes.

Example: `'ClusterMarkers',true`

Image file, specified as a character vector.

Data Types: `char`

Width and height of the icon, specified as a 1-by-2 vector of positive numeric values in pixels.

Vertical position of icon relative to site, specified as:

• `'bottom` - Aligns the icon below the site antenna position.

• `'center'` - Aligns the center of the icon to the site antenna position.

• `'top'` - Aligns the icon above the site antenna position.

Combine nearby markers into groups or clusters, specified as true or false.

Data Types: `char`

Map for visualization of surface data, specified as a `siteviewer` object.1

Data Types: `char` | `string`

Option to show a white line from the site down to the nearest surface, specified as numeric or logical `1` (`true`) or `0` (`false`).

Data Types: `logical`

## Version History

Introduced in R2017b
