whitespace around custom projection

Hi all,

I've created a custom projection for drawing Lambert plots on two
adjacent hemispheres, copied closely from the
custom_projection_example [1], and attached here.

The basics are working I think, but the axes objects have too much
whitespace around them, and I can't immediately work out what approach
to take to reduce it to something reasonable. Can anyone point me in
the right direction? Ultimately I'm hoping to be able to put several
of these plots together in a figure, which is currently not practical.

(Also, pcolor doesn't work as I expect, but I need to play around with
that a bit more before I know what question I need to ask of the
