projections in web browsers are terrible and you should be ashamed of yourself

Calvin Metcalf
Friday 14:00 - 14:25
Session 2, Track 3, Slot 3

The JavaScript port of proj4 was (relatively) recently moved from subversion to github and updated to use modern build tools.

The talk will discuss some of the differences between desktop and web environments when it comes to projections and CRS, other new projects that take a different perspective on projections (like topojson), and why you can’t just use an EPSG number in your browser (and should be ashamed of yourself wanting to).
