D3.js geoSinuMollweide() Function

  • Last Updated : 15 Oct, 2020
Geek Week

The JavaScript D3.js library provides interactive data visualizations for web page using HTML5, Scalable Vector Graphics, and Cascading Style Sheets.
The geoSinuMollweide() function in d3.js is used to draw the Allen K. Philbrick’s Sinu-Mollweide projection. 

Syntax:

d3.geoSinuMollweide()

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameters.

Return Value: This method creates the Sinu-Mollweide projection from given JSON data.

Example 1: The following example creates SinuMollweide projection of world with center at (0, 0) and no rotation.

    <script>
        var svg = d3.select("svg"),
            width = +svg.attr("width"),
            height = +svg.attr("height");
  
        // SinuMollweide projection
        // Center(0, 0) with 0 rotation
        var gfg = d3
            .geoSinuMollweide()
            .scale(width / 1.8 / Math.PI)
            .rotate([0, 0])
            .center([0, 0])
            .translate([width / 2, height / 2]);
  
        // Loading the json data
        // Used json file stored at 
                    /datageojson/master/world.json*/
        d3.json("https://raw.githubusercontent.com/"
            + "janasayantan/datageojson/master/world.json",
            function (data) {
  
                // Drawing the map
                svg.append("g").selectAll("path")
                    .data(data.features).enter().append("path")
                    .attr("fill", "DarkSlateGrey")
                    .attr("d", d3.geoPath().projection(gfg))
                    .style("stroke", "#ffff");
            });
    </script>
</body>
  
</html>

Output:

Example 2: In following example we will create SinuMollweide projection of world with center at (10, 0) and rotating -90 degree with respect to Y axis.

        var svg = d3.select("svg"),
            width = +svg.attr("width"),
            height = +svg.attr("height");
  
        // SinuMollweide  projection
        // Center(10, 0) and -90 degree
        // rotation w.r.t Y axis
        var gfg = d3
            .geoSinuMollweide()
            .scale(width / 1.8 / Math.PI)
            .rotate([-90, 0])
            .center([10, 0])
            .translate([width / 2, height / 2]);
  
        // Loading the json data
        // Used json file stored at 
                    /datageojson/master/world.json */
        d3.json("https://raw.githubusercontent.com/"
            + "janasayantan/datageojson/master/world.json",
            function (data) {
                // Draw the map
                svg.append("g").selectAll("path")
                    .data(data.features).enter()
                    .append("path").attr("fill", "grey")
                    .attr("d", d3.geoPath().projection(gfg))
                    .style("stroke", "#ffff");
            });
