basemap projection issues

Jason Snyder
I am trying to draw a map across the Atlantic Ocean from the eastern seaboard to Europe.  I also want to draw a map across the Pacific Ocean including both sides of the dataline using the basemap utility.  Unfortunately there is very limited information on how to do this.  I am not sure what project would be best.  For instance I want to draw a map with a latitude from 20 to 50 degrees and a longitude from 40 E to 120 W.  Using the basemap utility how do I go about doing this?

Re: basemap projection issues

Jason,

Basemap is currently in a long-term deprecation process. It is being maintained mostly for legacy scripts, and for a few features that aren't (yet) available elsewhere. For new development, I would suggest trying Cartopy first. It has a better API and better documentation, although it isn't as feature complete as basemap is. Give Cartopy a try first, and if you can't get it to work there, then you can come back and try basemap.

http://scitools.org.uk/cartopy/

The userbase is also more active there, so you might get a faster response to any questions you might have. I am not an expert in projections. I am just making sure that basemap continues to work with numpy and matplotlib.

Cheers!
