[OSM-dev] Coastline changes Antarctica

Hi!

In the course of the Antarctica coastline update (see 
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Antarctica/Import_2013) we want to
change how the coastline of Antarctica is represented in OSM. Specifically
the coastline currently only works for the usual Mercator web maps but not
other projections and we want to fix that.

I have described the details in this blog post:
http://blog.jochentopf.com/2013-03-11-state-of-the-osm-coastline.html
Have a look at the chapter about Antarctica. (The other stuff might be
interesting, too, though.)

If you are extracting coastline data from OSM yourself, you should probably
be aware of these issues.

Jochen
