Some of the functionality of the World Plotting Package is now available in CountryData.


is an option for WorldGraphics that turns any given projection into a transverse or oblique projection.


  • To use WorldRotation, you first need to load the World Plotting Package using Needs["WorldPlot`"].
  • WorldRotation takes a list of three parameters, each an angle in degrees; the first expresses a rotation about the y axis (assuming the planetary axis starts aligned with the z axis, with the x axis through the Prime Meridian), the second rotates about the z axis, and the third rotates about the rotated planetary axis.
  • The default is {0,0,0}.
