Favorite Demonstration (Assignment 2)

My favorite Matlab demonstration was Earth's Topography because it appeared to use very little code to create complete map of our world. I was also fascinated how it was able to account for day and night, and include topographical data. But the icing on the metaphorical cake was the fact that I was able to zoom in, zoom out and rotate the globe with a relatively fast response rate. I'd much rather interact with the Earth demonstration than change the color of data plots (even if they were 3-D).
