Converting Longitude & Latitude to X Y on a map using Julia

Well, I went ahead and did this — let me know if it seems useful.

@Wedg somehow I missed your comment about the implementation in PlotShapefiles.jl, but oh well :slight_smile:

One nice (at least, IMO) thing the Geodesy.jl API provides is CoordinateTransformations.jl — based transformation objects so you can naturally create a whole pipeline of coordinate transformations.

TBH it feels a little dirty to provide this somewhat-broken projection in a package called “Geodesy”, but it’s undeniably needed as it’s ubiquitous in practice… Even the EPSG eventually had to give up and assign it an official code :laughing:
