I've been trawling round the internet for a while trying to work
out if basemap could be made to plot using a UTM zone projection.
I've found some references to pyproj that could be used to convert
out of a UTM projection, but I haven't found any references to
defining a custom projection for basemap. Is it possible?
Also, there is not a lot of documentation regarding pyproj and I
find this a little odd considering it comes packaged with basemap.
Mat: Basemap can plot in the tranverse mercator projection
(projecton='tmerc') - UTM zones are transverse mercator with
specific lat/lon boundaries and a WGS84 ellipsoid. I suppose I could
add UTM zone support if there is enough demand for it.
