Abstract:Parametric equations transforming a sphere onto itself were discussed by Cayley in papers written in the 1840's. These equations have been programmed for the computer and are used here primarily to create hypothetical worlds (with alternative locations of the North Pole) and can be used to perform rotation of the earth before projection.

- Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is the official publication of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society. CaGIS supports research, education, and practices that improve the understanding, creation, analysis, and use of maps and geographic information. The society serves as a forum for the exchange of original concepts, techniques, approaches, and experiences by those who design, implement, and use geospatial technologies through the publication of authoritative articles and international papers. The role of the CaGIS journal is to facilitate these objectives by disseminating results and reports in these areas of interest.
Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is now being published by Taylor & Francis as of 2013. Please visit the Journal's website at www.tandfonline.com/tcag or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe and obtain online access.
