    Default Usable Mollweide Projection Grid

    Hi, people! This forum's been really helpful to me so far, and so I wanted to pay back the favor a bit.

    I've been researching and learning about map projections the past day or so, and I decided that I wanted to make a Mollweide projection for a new atlas I'm working on. I searched for a usable grid to help me create the look, but I didn't find anything scalable and user friendly. So instead, I just created my own Illustrator (yay, vectors!) file of a Mollweide projection GRID, set to 360x180 points (therefore one point is one degree).

    This is the basic outline including circles of latitude. Lat and long lines are set 15 degrees apart. In addition, I cropped every other longitude line near the poles to clean up that area. It's something I saw on another map when I was researching projection styles, and I kind of like it. I attached a .png preview image here:

    But the .zip file is what contains the .ai (Illustrator) file. I hope this comes in handy for at least some people!
