i'm trying to use the binary library from WhirlyGlobe-Maply in one of my new projects. The library can be found here: http://mousebird.github.io/WhirlyGlobe/ WhirlyGlobe-Maply poles look always flatten and not even, round like a globe even when I set
layer.coverPoles = true;
it looks like this:
how can i make it look like the rest of the globe shape?
Best How To :
The data sets most commonly provided (or made) online are in a coordinate system that does not cover the poles (spherical mercator, actually web mercator). That's just how spherical mercator works.
To fix it, you need to provide a data set in a coordinate system that does cover the poles, such as plate carrée. That's just unwrapped latitude/longitude.
Unless you're doing something fairly big and serious, I can tell you that it's not going to be worth the trouble. Just stick with the web mercator data sets.
Also, in future, I recommend opening an issue on github for this sort of thing. I don't monitor stackoverflow that closely.
