How to: Provide Cylindrical Equal-Area Projections

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E4253.

This example illustrates how to get equal-area map projections (Lambert, Behrmann, Tristan Edwards, Peters, Gall orthographic and Balthasart) for the shapes loaded from the Shapefiles (Countries.shp, Countries.dbf).

To accomplish this task, create an EqualAreaProjection object and assign it to the VectorLayerBase.MapProjection property. Then, specify the Width/height aspect ratio for each equal area projection using the VectorLayerBase.InitialMapSize property.

To learn more about the equal-area projections, see Cylindrical_equal-area_projection.
