icosa (0.9.81)

Global Triangular and Penta-Hexagonal Grids Based on Tessellated Icosahedra.


Employs triangular tessellation to refine icosahedra defined in 3d space. The procedures can be set to provide a grid with a custom resolution. Both the primary triangular and their inverted penta- hexagonal grids are available for implementation. Additional functions are provided to position points (latitude-longitude data) on the grids, to allow 2D and 3D plotting, use raster data and shapefiles.
