Basemap is currently in a long-term deprecation process. It is being
maintained mostly for legacy scripts, and for a few features that aren't
(yet) available elsewhere. For new development, I would suggest trying
Cartopy first. It has a better API and better documentation, although it
isn't as feature complete as basemap is. Give Cartopy a try first, and if
you can't get it to work there, then you can come back and try basemap.
The userbase is also more active there, so you might get a faster response
to any questions you might have. I am not an expert in projections. I am
just making sure that basemap continues to work with numpy and matplotlib.

I am trying to draw a map across the Atlantic Ocean from the eastern
seaboard to Europe. I also want to draw a map across the Pacific Ocean
including both sides of the dataline using the basemap utility.
Unfortunately there is very limited information on how to do this. I am
not sure what project would be best. For instance I want to draw a map
with a latitude from 20 to 50 degrees and a longitude from 40 E to 120 W.
Using the basemap utility how do I go about doing this?
