Changing map projection

Since v 3.19.0 you can change map projections easily. Most of our maps included in the package are made using Mercator projection. Although it’s one of the most popular projections, it’s quite often it is not good because it distorts area of the countries close to poles a lot. We made it possible to set map projection to one of these: Winkel 3 (used by National Geographic), Eckert 3, Eckert 5, Eckert 6, Miller and¬†Equirectangular. We believe these will cover most of the needs. Click on the links below the map to see these projections. You might set initial projection using projection property of AmMap or change it later using map.setProjection(projection) method.
