NCL map projectionsNCL supports several map projections. If you have data that's on a particular map projection, you can easily project it onto a different map projection.
NCL also supports shapefiles, if you need to add map outlines that NCL doesn't have.
For information about drawing high-resolution coastlines, see this information on the RANGS/GSHHS database.
Here's the NCL script for generating these maps.
|Aitoff||Azimuthal Equidistant||Cylindrical Equal Area|
|Lambert Conformal||Lambert Equal Area||Masked Lambert Conformal|
|Polar Stereographic||Robinson||Rotated Mercator|
