Version 0.9 (September 12, 2013)

  • We are very pleased to announce that Bill Little was added to the cartopy core development team. Bill has made some excellent contributions to cartopy, and his presentation at EuroScipy’13 on “Iris & Cartopy” was voted best talk of the conference.

  • Other talks and tutorials during this release cycle include Phil Elson’s talk at SciPy’13 (with video), Thomas Lecocq’s tutorial at EuroSciPy and a forthcoming talk at FOSS4G.

  • Christoph Gohlke updated cartopy to support Windows 7.

  • The Plate Carree projection was updated to fully handle arbitrary globe definitions.

  • Peter Killick updated the Mercator class’ default globe to WGS84. His refactor paved the way for some follow on work to fully implement the Google Spherical Mercator (EPSG:3857) projection.

  • The TransverseMercator class saw a tidy up to include several common arguments (pull request)

  • Bill Little added the Geostationary projection to allow geolocation of satellite imagery.

  • Byron Blay added the Lambert conformal conic projection.
