Rotated/Tilted Mercator Projection (2011)
Sunday 25 September 2011
The rotated/tilted Mercator geometry is introduced. The associated computations are developed. These computations involve formulae for :
- the direct geometric transform,
- the reverse geometric transform,
- the quantities associated to Coriolis force,
- the map factor,
- the transformation of vectors (so-called "compass"),
- the transformation of meteorological equations.
Finally, coding aspects are shortly discussed.
