[Marble-devel] Coordinate System of GeoPainter, GeoDataCoordinates and similar

 Hi Torsten,

I'm experimenting some difficulty to pass the marble clock to
ViewportParams as parameter.

The problem is that the viewport parameter
in SphericalProjection::screenCoordinates() is constant, for this reason I
can't set the marble clock to the ViewportParams class.

My SphericalProjection::screenCoordinates() method:
My ViewportParams methods: http://pastebin.com/xhtEjU7M

Furthermore I think that the code isn't implemented properly because
ViewportParamsPrivate::setPlanetAxis() isn't called from
SphericalProjection. ViewportParamsPrivate::setPlanetAxis() method need the
marble clock.

Can you help me?

Best regards.
