How to convert geographic grid data to rectangular grid data or projected grid format

Hello senior GMT users, I am new to GMT, and trying out something I want to run a program that requires I convert my topography and Bouguer gravity grid data to projected grid format especially using transverse Mercator projection but I don’t know how to do it, Actually want to use it for calculation of effective elastic thickness using wavelet transform. please, what is the GMT function and script for this?


grdproject input.grd -Jt<central meridian>/1:1 -Goutput.grd -F

As a general rule, you should always consult the program’s manual page. Here grdproject

@Andreas, many thanks it worked, though I have tried the example on the manual but this gave what I want

@Joaquim, many thanks , I have actually tried the examples on the manual but there is some differences in what Andreas sent and what is online. the second example online was not clear in some part.

the -Jt represent transverse Mercator, yes it worked, I have changed it to -Jm for Mercator projection. which still works, but other issues are if I have converted the data from geopraphic cordinate to cartesian cordinate or projected it, how can I re sample it using 20km grid spacing and know it projected dimension both easting and northing.

The examples in the man page cover different situations, although I agree that the example with Jt-75/1:500000 is not the best example to show.

To set the resolution use the option -D, something like -D20k should produce a grid approximately at 20 km resolution.

OK Sir, many thank, am grateful. what I just want to do is similar to what is written on the picture I uploaded, I want to convert my data to projected or Cartesian coordinate using Mercator projection, then re sample the projected data on a 20 km grid spacing. You and Andreas have answered me, but am yet to try the re sampling as suggestion from your reply. Many thanks, but how can I know my dimension both easting and northing? I have used GMT to plot many maps but still learning by the way, the aspect of data conversion is an issue since the script online don’t work as expected.

Use grdinfo on the output grid (output.grd in Andrea’s example) to know it’s caracteristics.

ok Professor. sure I want to try your suggestion now to see final out put
