This question already has an answer here:
I have a set of points that are defined as WGS84. In ArcMap the featureclass details are:
- Geographic Coordinate System: GCS_WGS_1984.
- Datum: D_WGS_1984
- Prime Meridian: Greenwich
- Angular Unit: Degree.
...so basically lats and longs - I want to effectively convert these to pixel coordinates on an empty image (1200x600 pixels). So the top left of the image is 0,0 and the bottom right is 1200,600. I will be doing this via a graphics API, but that's not important.
I am sure there is some kind of algorithm to convert the lat,longs to x,y pixel coordinates - does anyone know how to do this Python - or just the maths involved? Or is there a handy Python api I could use? I was thinking PyProj, but I'm not sure...
