World Map Projections and Poles
« on: September 01, 2010, 09:22:30 PM »
In some of the Wikipedia articles about world map projections, there is a link at the bottom to an interesting applet than can be used to move the pole around a map projection, and it's really quite interesting.

It's rally denotation. You have a co-driver and they tell you the track ahead. "bump" denotes a bump ahead, and I continued a fake track. 00's mean x00 meters till the next thing. 6 and 7 are the widest turns and 1 and 2 are the sharpest. Crest is also used instead of bump, and finish is the end obviously.
