Oblique Cylindrical Equal Area

Oblique Cylindrical Equal Area

proj-string: +proj=ocea



For the Oblique Cylindrical Equal Area projection a pole of rotation is needed. The pole can be defined in two ways: By a point and azimuth or by providing to points that make up the pole.

Point & azimuth


Longitude of rotational pole point.


Angle of rotational pole.

Two points


Longitude of first point.


Latitude of first point.


Longitude of second point.


Latitude of second point.



Longitude of projection center.

Defaults to 0.0.


Radius of the sphere given in meters. If used in conjunction with +ellps +R takes precedence.


Scale factor. Determines scale factor used in the projection.

Defaults to 1.0.


False easting.

Defaults to 0.0.


False northing.

Defaults to 0.0.
