I'm new to GIS so pardon my ignorance and bear with me. I'm generating a grid relative to a LonLat point. To make the cells all equal area, I'm creating it in 2163 projection. The problem is that when I reproject to 900913 and stick it on a Google Maps baselayer in OpenLayers, the whole grid is rotated clockwise. I understand this is a purely cosmetic issue, but it's a project requirement. Is it possible to change the map's projection to display it vertically? If not, is there another map source I can use that uses 2163 or can be projected to it?
If all of this is out of a question, is there another way to generate equal area grids for Mercator 900913 which will line up vertically?
