Maps are shown in SeisComP using the rectangular projection by default. The mapprojections plugin provides additional map projections. They include:

  • Mercator projection for a balanced view at the equator and near the polar regions at latitudes between -85 and +85 degree.

  • Spherical projection for undistorted view even in the polar regions.

  • Kavrayskiy projection for a balanced view near the equator and in the polar regions.



  1. Add the plugin to the global configuration:

    plugins = ${plugins}, mapprojections
  2. Set the map properties the global configuration in*.


When set up, the map projection type can be changed interactively on maps. Click the right mouse button. The projections are available in the Projection menu.
