Viewing Map Projections
Ever wondered what a Raisz Half Ellipsoidal projection of the Earth look like? Well you do know because its shown on the right! The Map Room points to the Global Map Projector over at NASA which allows you to transform any equirectangular map image into another projection. Really is an easy (and fun!) way to explore the effects of different map projections. Also a very good way of generating bespoke world images for presentations; The Map Room suggests a visit to flatplanet to grab some JPG files from their vast archive of interesting world images to play with.
