Add sinusoidal projection
|Reported by:||etourigny||Owned by:||davidhassell|
The sinusoidal projection is used in NASA's MODIS products, and is supported by PROJ.4, Snyder and OGC WKT.
The mapping would be simple as this projection uses few existing CF projection parameters.
Proposed text :
grid_mapping_name = sinusoidal
The x (abscissa) and y (ordinate) rectangular coordinates are identified by the standard_name attribute value projection_x_coordinate and projection_y_coordinate respectively.
Notes on using the PROJ.4 software packages for computing the mapping may be found at http://www.remotesensing.org/geotiff/proj_list/sinusoidal.html. Detailed formulas can be found in [Snyder] pages 243-248.
