Find (x, y) values corresponding to (longitude, latitude) values, using the present projection.

mapLongitudeLatitudeXY(longitude, latitude)



numeric vector of the longitudes of points, or an object from which both latitude and longitude can be inferred (e.g. a coastline file, or the return value from mapLocator()), in which case the following two arguments are ignored.


numeric vector of latitudes of points, needed only if they cannot be inferred from the first argument.


A list containing x and y.


This is mainly a wrapper around lonlat2map().
