Another globe

This one is Europe and Africa showing the prime meridian, equator and 15,30, and 45 degree lines. It was generated with the demo version of a program called Mapmaker which I found on a ham radio site - ham radio is of course one field where you do sometimes need maps centred on odd points, and there seem to be several programs of this general type out there.

I did two versions; one is just the map generated by the program, adding the grid and changing the colour a little but otherwise unmodified; the other is "the back of a commemorative coin" struck in honour of the project. I'm not sure which is best - the coin isn't as clear, but I really don't think it matters much; it's going to be pretty small on the page anyway, probably replacing the blue version of the map grid I posted a few days ago.
