Methods for Function recenter in Package `sp'

Methods for function recenter in package sp to shift or re-center geographical coordinates for a Pacific view. All longitudes < 0 are added to 360, to avoid for instance parts of Alaska being represented on the far left and right of a plot because they have values straddling 180 degrees. In general, using a projected coordinate reference system is to be prefered, but this method permits a geographical coordinate reference system to be used. This idea was suggested by Greg Snow, and corresponds to the two world representations in the maps package.
