Beyond Mercator


FOSSGIS 2016 in Salzburg is over – many interesting talks you can all watch on the FOSSGIS Youtube channel. You can now also find the slides for my talk on Frab.

Many people showed interest in the Peirce quincuncial projection for which i showed a demo at the end – you can find the proj.4 implementation on github and the demo map on – or included directly below, pressing shift while panning gives you automated north orientation.

I will try to write up a bit more on this in the future – there are a lot of interesting aspects about this projection, both from a technical viewpoint as well as from a user perspective.
