Map projections

On-topic for a change... :P

Die.net shows an interesting utility for graphing the illuminated half of the Earth at any given time. It's nifty, but the fact that it uses Blue Marble, just as the track map generator does, makes me wonder about how it can be integrated into the track program... particularly of interest would be the modifications to different projections, as we're restricted to only a carte parallelogrammatique in our output. They use ImageMagick, so we even share a back end... hmm.
