Hi Matlab Answers,

I'm trying to plot a spacetime image with positions on the y-axis and time on the x-axis.

When displaying the image using

`imshow(ST_image);axis on;% size(ST_image) = [500 512] `

the display is 1:500 x 1:512, as expected.

When trying to change to physical dimensions, e.g.

`Space_limits = [40 60]; % mm`

Time_limits = [-0.01 0.1] %s

the axes are on very different scales. This causes the displayed figure to collapse the image to effectively a vertical line and I can't seem to get it to reshape.

I've tried imref2D for world coordinates, setting the XData, YData properties, scaling the axes aspect ratio, etc. I'm sure this is just a figure and/or axes property that I'm missing, but would be very grateful if somebody knew offhand.

`ST_ref = imref2d(size(ST_image))ST_ref.XWorldLimits = Time_limits;ST_ref.YWorldLimits = Space_limits;f = figure;imshow(ST_image,ST_ref); axis on;%f.XData = Time_limits;`

%pbaspect([1 1 1])

Thanks for your help!
