MATLAB Demonstration

The demonstration that I found most appealing on MATLAB was the Loma Prieta Earthquake Demonstration. The demonstration allowed me to visualize how the earthquake spreads and which areas it affects using an accelerometer to collect the data. Also, being able to convert the collected data into a graphic model using MATLAB 3-D plotting is a unique and interesting feature that MATLAB provides. This demonstration illustrated that MATLAB allows the user to both algebraicly interpret and graphically visualize (if desired) the model on which he/she is working.
