I would like to create maps showing ocean areas with small ship icons at the ship locations. I can create icons but how do I add them to the map?

If you have an internet connection, use WEBMAP to draw a map and WMMARKER to put the icon on the map. (See the second example in WMMARKER)
If you do not, use GEOSHOW to draw a map and put an image:
figure
geoshow('landareas.shp', 'FaceColor', [0.5 1.0 0.5]);
hold on
img = imread('peppers.png');image([-70 -50],[0 20],img);
The following documentation code might help you to get an idea. (This is bioinformatics example, but the mapping part does not require it to run)
