     56 * ''longitude_of_central_meridian''
     57 * Either ''standard_parallel'' or ''scale_factor_at_projection_origin''
     58 * ''false_easting''
     59 * ''false_northing''

     61===== Map coordinates: =====
     62
     63The x (abscissa) and y (ordinate) rectangular coordinates are identified by the ''standard_name'' attribute value ''projection_x_coordinate'' and ''projection_y_coordinate'' respectively.

     67Notes on using the PROJ.4 software packages for computing the mapping may be found at http://www.remotesensing.org/geotiff/proj_list/cylindrical_equal_area.html ("Lambert Cylindrical Equal Area" or EPSG 9834 or EPSG 9835). Detailed formulas can be found in [Snyder] pages 76-85.
