Public Class ObliqueMercator Inherits Projection
public class ObliqueMercator : Projection
The Oblique Mercator projection is used in the spherical form for a few atlas maps. In the ellipsoid form it was used for Switzerland and Madagascar as well as Malaya and Borneo and Italy. It is used in the Hotine form by the USGS for grid marks on the panhandle of Alaska as well as by the US Lake Survey for mapping of the five great lakes, the St Lawrence River, and the US-Canada border lakes.
Until the implementation of Space Oblique Mercator, the Hotine Oblique Mercator was probably the most suitable projection available for mapping Landsat type data.
