Re: How to add a scale to any map projection

but a lot of work! Ah well, the page I’ve linked to is about 10 KB, with half of it being the HTML/CSS code to put out the page, and the other half being the PHP code which is doing the actual calculations. That wasn’t that much work. :) And, of course, only applies to a cylindric or pseudocylindri...

Re: How to add a scale to any map projection

Thank you! Of course, I’m using a metric line database that draws portions of small circles along the parallels. Since Geocart wants geographic coordinates for the start, middle and end points, I had to calculate the length of a degree of longitude at various latitudes in kilometers (using the formu...

Re: How to add a scale to any map projection

Actually, neither Geocart 2 nor Geocart 3 can add a scale bar to the map. Oh, but it can! Well, sort of. With a bit of work and under certain circumstances. However, the image below shows not one, but six scale bars, with each of the red and green “subdivisions“ (don’t know if that’s the right term...

Re: My first and foremost wish!

Thank you – for the reply and the rant! and no chance it will be soon (…) hopefully that’s not a problem. I don’t think it’ll be a problem, for the reason you mentioned. And I agree that the story is annoying. :-( At the moment, I don’t know if I even want an ARM-powered Mac. With any luck it’ll be ...

My first and foremost wish!

My first and foremost wish is – that Geocart will continue to run on the upcoming ARM-powered Macs! My current Mac was bought merely a year ago so I hope to work with it for another few years – but some day… daan, do you already have an idea if the transition to the new architecture will be easy or ...

Re: Exported geocart projections

I get a 'Not Found" message when I try to update the version I just downloaded the zip file with no problems. Recently I occasionally get a “server not found” message when I try to access the website or this forum, it usually works again a few minutes (or sometimes even a few seconds) later. Maybe ...

Re: Gilbert two-world perspective doesn't make sense

So his negative opinion, instead of being "intolerant, a non sequitur ", and dismissive of "the projection's better qualities", is merely due to his being uninformed about the purpose of the projection. Yes, but if you can’t see the purpose of a map projection (or anything else, for that matter) I ...

Re: Gilbert two-world perspective doesn't make sense

No.
I can not be part of Geocart’s manual. You know, copyright and stuff.

Edit: Sorry, I think I got your question wrong: You asked for the article’s content which of course can be e.g. a summary, not the article itself. So that would be allowed, but the answer is still No.
