Geocart : Projections galore!

I just discovered this really cool app called Geocart. The application  provides tools for preparing vector and raster maps  in a huge variety of map projections – a lot of them I never heard off!. For example -since Valentine’s Day is upon us- did you know that there is a projection call ‘Heart’?. It’s the one below:

I had a little play with the software downloading the demo version. The price for the full version IMO is a bit steep ($800 for a full license, $240 for personal, non-commercial use) but I assume there may be quite a few people out there who would find it useful. Even in demo mode, being able to quickly see an earth map in all these different projections along with their properties may come handy especially in a training / academic environment. Definitely worth a try!
