Yep, the basic ideas of that text are still OK but the samples (from

You can find actual examples of projections in the

That is right, the documentation of extensions is not as it should be.
However, we're now concentrating at other parts (and need also there

Anyway, I hope this samples will help you with respect to
Boost.Geometry. The projection initializations strings, and projections
themselves, all taken from proj4, are documented quite well, here:
