specify the default projection for a WorldMap object
a WorldMap object
the name of a projection, optionally including parameters if applicable
The SetProjection command sets the default projection of m.
This projection is the one that is used by default when calling Display, and when printing a world map object. It is also the projection that is considered when using ResetView.
proj must be the name of a valid projection (see the full List of Projections), optionally including parameters if applicable (for example, CylindricalEqualArea(37.5)).
m ≔ DataSets:-Builtin:-WorldMap⁡
m≔PLOT⁡...A map of the worldprojection: MillerCylindrical
When the map is displayed after setting the center, it now uses the LambertAzimuthalEqualArea projection.
PLOT⁡...A map of the worldprojection: LambertAzimuthalEqualArea(0,0)
This projection is also the one now used by default with the Display command.
The DataSets[Builtin][WorldMap][SetProjection] command was introduced in Maple 2017.
