Re: Experimental projections

Thanks Daan! I found the right projection center that allowed me to crop one face of the tetrahedron in 3 equal parts et voilà :mrgreen:

Re: Experimental projections

Hi guys!Talking abou experimental projections... I did it again... A few days ago I was thinking about a projection on a tetrahedron with less disortion and still a nice shape. After a lot of shots I found this arrangment... I hope you like! Not exactly a rectangle but almost... Enjoy! tetra-concial...

Re: Request for feedback on my map projection paper

Hi all, I know that somehow we are gone quite off-topic here but after the "guy doing push-ups map" I wanted to do the same but better. So... call me the crazy photoshop guy but I wanted to waste some time to get this. This map derives from the cube with some big manual work... grid is totally hand ...

Re: Request for feedback on my map projection paper

I don't know if I personally like the way eastern South America and western North America look in that particular one, but I certainly see the potential. Maybe I'll try something like what you suggested. Or at the very least, I'll mention conformality in the future work part of my conclusion and ho...

Re: Request for feedback on my map projection paper

I tried to make a fully conformal projection with fairly low distortion of area and general shape using just the Lambert conic conformal: Nowadays, though, of course the biggest demand is for projections that are fully equal-area. Not new to me, I really like your website :D Check here https://www....

Re: Request for feedback on my map projection paper

That's it. It's nothing more than an experiment... The outer shape is ugly but the overall look of lands is very nice to my eyes. I played with the conformal cube of Geocart (demo version, you can see the watermarks) and I found the parameter to have all land a little away from the cube vertexes. St...

Re: Request for feedback on my map projection paper

Hi Justin! I have read all the paper. It sounds pretty clear to me even if I'm not so much into that level of mathematics. To be honest I already noticed the Danseiji maps in your MapDesigner and I find Danseiji IV absolutely great. The base idea is great, I totally like it. The only thing I would t...

Re: A few doubts about vector databases

Hi Daan, thanks, it's quite clear. Let's see if I understand: ESRI Shapefile is the only vector format recognized by Geocart. Each database consists in more files and is Geocart will use a specific line style based on what coverage is assigned to each database. Then if I have a different database fo...

A few doubts about vector databases

Hello all, it's the first time I play around with Geocart so sorry if I'll do stupid questions... I'm trying to use Natural Earth vector databases and I have a few question I cannot find any answer in the manual. - River line width: is it possible to obtain a progressive width vector line for river ...

Re: Conformal polyhedral maps

Check out also this intersting paper about polyhedral maps! https://inspire.redlands.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1110&context=gis_gradproj Even if I don't like so much the result, the idea is very good and I guess that using the conformal engine that Daan developed it's possible to obtain great ...
