Someone knows how convert a world map in Van der Grinten projection to Equirectangular? I'm making a map to a friend - he have a fictional world in his books - and I need make this convertion to work properly ^^

A GIS system would work nicely, as would the GDAL command line tools. For a simple conversion like that, though, I'd just use thevenerable ReprojectImage from http://www.ridgenet.net/~jslayton/ReprojectImage.zip - it's a little old, but it works well enough for a lot of things. Of course, it's a Windows-only program, so your mileage may vary.

Thank you :) This time I made the conversion manually (making a grid, distorting map with PS), but in next time i'll use this tool =)
