Correction of Vertical perspective projection

Reported by: martin.raspaud Owned by: davidhassell
Priority: medium Milestone:
Component: cf-conventions Version:
Keywords: Cc:



There is a confusion under the notes of the Vertical Perspective text in the conventions between geos and nsper. Snyder is describing near-sided perspective... Here is the corrected text:


A general description of vertical perspective projection is given in [Snyder], pages 169-181.

The corresponding projection is proj.4 is nsper. This should not be confused with the proj.4 geos projection.

I was trying to reconstruct where the original Vertical perspective projection proposal came from. Is there a way to figure that out?

I see this is not present in the 1.7 draft document... is there something missing ?
