Not really that much different except for additions like prime meridian.

Thought about the same thing many times but a couple of factors have
kept me out of the game: 1) except for a GUI plotting program using
Athena widgets that I did for MAPGEN I do not have much, if any, skill
in this area and 2) finding a GUI that is portable across OSs.  Also the
latter answer must have linkage ability to a C library.  Today it looks
like one would go crazy just making such a choice---too many options.
