Qblique and rescaled version of the Hammer projection.

Prior to December 2016, the image was centered to the Greenwich meridian. I changed this to 10° East because the Briesemeister projection is a special configuration of the Hammer projection, and I felt obliged to meet the exact config that is associated with Briesemeister’s name.
