pst-geo – Geographical Projections

The pack­age of­fers a set of PSTricks re­lated pack­ages for var­i­ous car­to­graphic pro­jec­tions of the ter­res­trial sphere. The pack­age pst-map2d pro­vides con­ven­tional pro­jec­tions such as Mer­ca­tor, Lam­bert, cylin­dri­cal, etc.

The pack­age pst-map3d treats rep­re­sen­ta­tion in three di­men­sions of the ter­res­trial sphere. Pack­ages pst-map2dII and pst-map3dII al­low use of the CIA World DataBank II. Var­i­ous pa­ram­e­ters of the pack­ages al­low for choice of the level of the de­tail and the lay­outs pos­si­ble (cities, bor­ders, rivers etc).

Sub­stan­tial data files are pro­vided, in an (in­ter­nally) com­pressed for­mat. De­com­pres­sion hap­pens on-the-fly as a doc­u­ment us­ing the data is dis­played, printed or con­verted to PDF for­mat. A Perl script is pro­vided for the user to do the de­com­pres­sion, if the need should arise.
