I need code (pseudo code or any C-like language) to convert in Mercator Projection (the one used in Google Maps):
- from geographic latitude/longitude to map X/Y (given the size of the map)
- from map X/Y (given its size) to latitude/longitude

The code is OK, the result was [0, pi), I didn't notice that for the time being. I thought something like [0, 1) .
