Re: On distortion and optimal projections

Sorry I haven’t commented yet; I’m still looking into your results in relation to my own investigations.

It’s interesting that you’re getting results this close to optimal with your method, as I see on your linked page. I will have more to say later, I hope.

Re: What is extruded globe?

Nice find on the globe gores! I’m surprised about how spare the color and content are. I suppose you’d want plenty of room for annotations, and no clutter. I like the practical direction your explorations took for the map projection and I am a little surprised they didn’t pan out. My map is 1843, by...

Re: What is Add test page items?

Oh, the test menu isn’t available to customers in the product. I presume Piotr scanned the executable, worked out the incantations required to enable the menu, and perhaps was hoping to be praised for his cleverness. Or something. Or, maybe there’s some bug that exposes the menu. I don’t see any way...

Re: Experimental projections

That’s a really fine arrangement for reducing distortion over land. I can’t think of one better that’s conformal and with as few interruptions.

Re: How to add a scale to any map projection

Inventive, but a lot of work! And, of course, only applies to a cylindric or pseudocylindric projection. I don’t have any strong ideas for how to make static scale bars meaningful on general world maps. Mostly I don’t have any ideas about how to make people comfortable about not having a scale bar. ...

Re: My first and foremost wish!

Hello Tobias. Apple’s ARM announcement makes me tired. Yes, of course, Geocart will be released for ARM. That said, there’s very little chance it will be “easy” and no chance it will be soon. Given that they will start with low-powered Macs least likely to be used for Geocart, hopefully that’s not a...

Re: Exported geocart projections

Hello Joe.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

Questions:
1. What version of Geocart, and platform? (3.3.5, Mac?)
2. What projection is in use in the raster reprojection database?
3. What projection are you reprojecting to?

Regards,

Re: GEOCART software itself closed

Hello Daniel. The document you kindly provided separately has no trouble exporting to PDF in our experiments on Geocart 3.3.5. However, we do see problems when exporting via Geocart 3.3.3. You indicate that you are using Geocart 3.3.5, so we are not sure why. With apologies for the inconvenience, we...
