`projection` |
The type of 2D projection to be performed. |

`gdata` |
Two-column matrix of latitude, longitude coordinates of
coastline vertices. Defaults to |

`runlen` |
Integer vector giving the number of vertices in each connected
polygon in the coastline. Defaults to |

`asp` |
Optional. Aspect ratio of the longitude and latitude scales. |

`...` |
Optional arguments passed to |

`do.plot` |
Logical value indicating whether to actually perform the plotting, or just to return the calculated coordinates. |

In the `atlas`

projection, the continents are
plotted in longitude, latitude coordinates without any correction.

In the `cylindrical`

projection, the latitude is transformed
so that equal areas on the sphere are transformed onto equal areas
on the plot.

(Invisibly) a 4-column matrix containing the projected *(x,y)*
coordinates of the segments of the coastline.

Use `flatpoints`

to plot points on the image.
