There is the minus sign part to enter. Though knowing what you are ultimately seeking would help clarify. That being said- dancing around the dateline is conspicuous for the difficulties that can present.Chris

Apologies, I got my wires crossed.What I meant was, how would I make a map where the left edge was atlongitude 100 (e.g. Thailand), and the right edge is at, say 99(again Thailand).  The Pacific Ocean, and the International Dateline, wouldbe in the middle of this map.I tried the obvious thing:plot(wrld_simpl, xlim = c(100, 99))...but that produces a flipped map...Cheers!NickOn Mon, Sep 14, 2015 at 3:38 PM, Frede Aakmann Tøgersen wrote:> Hi Nick>> To be honest I do not understand your question so I am guessing that you> probably only need to set the xlim to c(-100, 100).
