    Tutorial How to fit a map to a globe.

    I have a post on my little blog about fitting a map to a globe without nasty pinching or discontinuities. Good for those who are as obsessive compulsive about realism as I wish I were.

    Here you go.

    Comments here or on the site are welcome. Please rate this tutorial!

    Nice

    Know of any Gimp versions of the Flexify filter?

    Try Matthew's Map Projection Software.
    I'll try a new revised post with GIMP and MMPS. I'm looking forward to jury duty so it won't be too soon.

    depending on just what input data you have
    MMPS is not bad

    the main issues are the correct mapping at and near the poles

    gimp has a built in tool to remap to polar projection

    this in combination with the gimp plugin "Resynthesizer"

    http://www.logarithmic.net/pfh/resynthesizer

    the source code
    https://github.com/bootchk/resynthesizer

    you can then "fix" the area at the poles

    or
    use the built in tool "heal" to fix small areas
