Mapx: Map Transformations Library
Entry ID: MAPX

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Mapx is a coordinate transformation library developed at NSIDC. The C code was
initially developed from equations given by Snyder (1982) and tested against
the examples in his Appendix A. Additional projections have been added as
needed. The C version of Mapx currently supports 11 common projections, in both
spherical and ellipsoid forms when appropriate.

The Java version was ported from the C to simplify using the transforms in Java
applets and applications. The Java lags behind the C somewhat and currently
supports nine common projections, in both spherical and ellipsoid forms when
appropriate.
