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.

Re: New maps of Geocart should randomize the projection

You really think new Geocart users are too dumb to notice that there are dozens of projections available? – Funny, I always thought that the myriad of projections is one of the reasons why people actually buy Geocart.

Re: Do Van Der Grinten I and Van Der Grinten II uh... not have the middle Indicatrix?

Piotr, it’s simply a bug. The same bug was to be found in a different projection a while ago (can’t remember anymore which projection it was). A workaround is to set the center longitude to 0°0'0.0036"E, but I’m sure the bug will be fixed in the next Geocart version. Edit : Apparently, the workaroun...
