perl-Geo-Dymaxion

Plot latitude/longitude on a Fuller Dymaxion(tm) map

"Geo::Dymaxion" allows you to draw points on Dymaxion(tm) maps using latitude and longitude data, which turns out to be quite difficult and requires some tricky trigonometry. This module strives to hide away all the ugly math and allow you to concentrate on drawing your map.

The Dymaxion(tm), or Fuller, projection was invented by R. Buckminster Fuller in 1954, and is "the only flat map of the entire surface of the Earth which reveals our planet as one island in one ocean, without any visually obvious distortion of the relative shapes and sizes of the land areas, and without splitting any continents." See http://www.bfi.org/map.htm for more details.

NAME
    Geo::Dymaxion - Plot latitude/longitude on a Fuller Dymaxion(tm) map

SYNOPSIS
      use Geo::Dymaxion;
  
      # Suppose we have a Fuller projection of the Earth's surface that's
      # 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

      my $map = Geo::Dymaxion->new( 800, 600 );

      # Find the x and y coordinates in pixels of Philadelphia, PA, USA.

      my ($x, $y) = $map->plot( 40, -75 )
