First of all my English quite bad, so I'm sorry for any possible mistakes.
I'm wondering whether there's a smart way to do map projections with
To be more precise:
I want sort of a globe (including for instance continents) apply a map to
this and then see the image under the transformation / projection.
So my problems are basically the following:
1)How can I get a globe into Mathematica? Meaning a bunch of functions that
sort of 'draw' a globe? Is there any predefined thing? So that the only
thing I'd have to do is to compose the functions 'drawing the globe' with my
I know that mathematica comes along with the package `WorldPlot. So is there
anyway to access the data they're using there? They even got some different
projections options but the point is that I want to do in on my own.
Has anyone got experience in this?
Any hints, links or whatsoever highly appreciated,
