, including those listed on Wikipedia. It is sortable by the main fields. Inclusion in the table is subjective, as there is no definitive Lines of constant bearing (rhumb lines) are straight, aiding navigation. Areas inflate with latitude, becoming so extreme that the map cannot show the poles. Horizontally compressed version of the Lambert equal-area. Has standard parallels at 30°N/S and an aspect ration of 2.36. Horizontally compressed version of the Lambert equal-area. Very similar are Trystan Edwards and Smyth equal surface (= Craster rectangular) projections with standard parallels at around 37°N/S. Aspect ratio of ~2.0. Horizontally compressed version of the Lambert equal-area. Standard parallels at 45°N/S. Aspect ratio of ~1.6. Similar is Balthasart projection with standard parallels at 50°N/S. A family of map projections that includes as special cases Mollweide projection, Collignon projection, and the various cylindrical equal-area projections. Modified from azimuthal equal-area equatorial map. Boundary is 2:1 ellipse. Variants are oblique versions, centred on 45°N. Boundary is a circle. All parallels and meridians are circular arcs. Usually clipped near 80°N/S. Standard world projection of the Parallels are equally spaced circular arcs and standard lines. Appearance depends on reference parallel. General case of both Werner and sinusoidal The straight-line distance between the central point on the map to any other map is the same as the straight-line 3D distance through the globe between the two points. Map is infinite in extent with outer hemisphere inflating severely, so it is often used as two hemispheres. Maps all small circles to circles, which is useful for planetary mapping to preserve the shapes of craters. Two “control points” can be arbitrarily chosen. The two straight-line distances from any point on the map to the two control points are correct. Source.
