This cylindrical projection is actually several projections, depending on what latitude is selected as the standard parallel. However, they are all equal area and hence non-conformal. All meridians and parallels are straight lines.
ylon0/lat0/scale or Ylon0/lat0/width
The projection is set with y or Y. The projection center is set by lon0/lat0, and the figure size is set with scale or width.
import pygmt fig = pygmt.Figure() # Use region "d" to specify global region (-180/180/-90/90) fig.coast( region="d", projection="Y35/30/12c", water="dodgerblue", shorelines="thinnest", frame="afg", ) fig.show()
