I've just started to use inkscape a few days ago to draw a map. But for
this I would like to have a user defined coordinate system as my country
outline is in "degree". It would be really nice if I could use the
geographic grid (ie. for adding point symbols at 19°N, 101°E). But I
would need to set somewhere a global transformation to map that system
onto the drawing area: 1° equals 3cm on paper, and the origin of the
paper =18°N,99E for example.
Perhaps something like that is already included and I only couldn't find
I have used the grid for that. You can specify its size and origin.
However, all coordinates displayed everywhere are not in the grid but the
documents reference system (see my post of a few days ago). This is the
best solution I found.
Hope this helps.
