I am seeking advice in working with world data sets where the GCS has a positive range (0 degrees to 360 degrees). The data I am working with are NetCDF oceanographic data and have positive coordinate values as mentioned. When displayed in a normal GCS in ESRI's ArcGIS 10, it is offset from other data that exist in the range of -180 to 180. If I reproject it, gaps occur around the prime meridian (mostly due to its origins, sometimes as far off as 25 degrees W). My thought is to create a custom projection/coordinate system that has the positive values and hope that other world data sets reproject on the fly just fine. Does anyone see any issues with this or have other solutions? Hope this makes sense. I appreciate any help in advance.
