[Matplotlib-users] basemap projection issues

Basemap is currently in a long-term deprecation process. It is being
maintained mostly for legacy scripts, and for a few features that aren't
(yet) available elsewhere. For new development, I would suggest trying
Cartopy first. It has a better API and better documentation, although it
isn't as feature complete as basemap is. Give Cartopy a try first, and if
you can't get it to work there, then you can come back and try basemap.


The userbase is also more active there, so you might get a faster response
to any questions you might have. I am not an expert in projections. I am
just making sure that basemap continues to work with numpy and matplotlib.
