Does anyone know of a source for an Arctic EPSG:4326 map projection?
Obviously I'm a GIS newbie, so gentle pointers in the right direction appreciated!
It's a long story. I have some arctic ice data that I'd like to visualize with Tableau 8.0 which accepts external wms maps, so long as they're EPSG:4326 (Plate Carree) projections.
Obviously such a projection tangent to the equator won't work for high latitudes. But there's nothing that says you couldn't do a mercator-like projection using the prime meridan as the 'equator' so that close to the pole x-y placements would be reasonably accurate.
If such a thing existed I could upload it into Tableau 8.0 and plot my points. Or, if there was a recipe for reprojecting an existing map into this format using grass or gdwalp or some such I could do it myself.
Anybody ever hear of such a thing? Or have any advice?
