I'm using basemap to plot a dataset* that has longitude values like so:
lon = [0, 2, 4, ..., 356, 358]
I'd like to use Basemap.shiftgrid to transform the longitudes and data
to the -180, 180 interval, but I get 'ValueError, cyclic point not
included' since 360 isn't among the longitudes.
Attached is a version of shiftgrid that attempts to handle the
non-cyclic case. There are pseudo-unit-tests that demonstrate the
cyclic and non-cyclic case for a 180 degree shift.
