Spotted some rendering 'artifacts' while trying to use a custom CRS Ortho projection on Valmiera.

My custom CRS is an orthographic projection centered on London :-

+proj=ortho +lat_0=51.45 +lon_0=-1.0 +x_0=0 +y_0=0

As you can see from the enclosed screenshot, there are two types of rendering artifacts...

- 45 degree extensions to the top-left (filled vector layer)
- gradient filled ellipses radiating to (0,0) on the canvas (tisserot indicatrices vector layer)

I suspect that polygons which cross the visible 'horizon' aren't being clipped to the circle, and any vertices on these polygons which are hidden are being set to NaN / infinite / zero value?

Polygons, lines and points which are fully beyond the horizon remain hidden.

#1 Updated by J├╝rgen Fischer about 6 years ago

  • Target version changed from Version 2.2 to Future Release - Lower Priority

#2 Updated by Steven Kay almost 5 years ago

  • Status changed from Open to Closed

I've closed this, there's a plugin called "Clip to Hemisphere" which clips a vector layer to the hemispherical edge from a given center point... this fixes the rendering issues.
