this could be a stupid question but I'm struggling quite a while with this one. Also, I can't find much info on the internet.
Is it possible to import the natural earth data centered on another area than europe? My problem is that when I make a map from an area that's at the border off the natural earth WGS84 data, I don't know how to cut it prior to reproject the whole thing.
You could say, don't cut it, but sometimes the projection I need does not work with the whole earth: orthographic for instance, because lines that are on the back of the globe are visible and thus are messing up my map. Btw, if someone would know how to get rid of those, I would be very happy to know also :-)
I'm afraid this could be a "beginner"-question, sorry about that.
