Introduction

Through the early months of 2015, efforts were made to incorporate PROJ.4 projections into the oce R package. An earlier attempt had relied on the proj4 R package, but this package has the disadvantage of reporting an error if any point in a polygon cannot be projected, so it had to be called pointwise on coastline vectors, at significant time cost (minutes for many practical cases). The next step was to incorporate PROJ.4 code into oce itself. This was used in oce version 0.9-17. However, a CRAN member suggested removing the PROJ.4 code from oce when 0.9-17 was being vetted, and so later versions of ‘oce’ rely on the ‘rgdal’ package.

Oce only provides those PROJ.4 projections that have inverses. This is because oce needs to do inverse projections for some of its plotting operations. Also note that a handful of projections have not been incorporated, because they cause errors of various sorts; see oce issue 635 for more on this.

I will not explain the methodology of projection here, nor the details of any given projection. Readers should consult the help for the oce function mapPlot() and the many websites detailing software that derives from PROJ.4. In due course, they will be able to consult my book.
