I'm looking to make a geodesic hexagonal global grid based on a icosahedron. Such a grid would need to have 12 pentagons in it as well to be able to fit a sphere.
I know mmqgis can generate grids, but these grids are plain flat grids, not geodesic ones, and they do not map to a sphere without extreme distortion, which I'm trying to avoid.
What I'm trying to make is something like this:
Ideally, this would be done on windows, but Linux is also an option if there are no tools available for the former
