Randy, find maps that you want (in simple cylindrical format) I can project them for you.
Tayfun, it's cool you can make projections for us... but it would be even better if you could publish your program! Is it possible for you?
Else, maybe you could help us writing a GIMP plugin: I just discovered GIMP can be used to create transverse mercator projections uisng a scripting language:http://forum.cartographersguild.com/showpo...amp;postcount=4
A thing I can't understand is which size the azimutal projection image must have, once I know the size of the UTN projection.
For example, I created an UTM 62x31 cm wide; with Wilbur
SW I can create the Lambert Azimutal Equal Area, but program asks the size of the output image... and I do not know what to answer!
To create the projection using Wilbur:
File-->Open (color image texture)
Surface-->MapInfo (specify -180,180, 90,-90)
... then what?!?
In your experience, which one is better to glue over a solid sphere? flower petal, or just transverse mercator? I'm in trouble with both of them...
Maybe I could try writing a script
, as I already know Python. What I don't know are the projections formulas...
Just found also GIMP does support python:http://www.gimp.org/docs/python/index.html
