Lambert's latitude of no distortion was the equator. Others have suggested different latitudes (the 'central latitude' of the projection): Lambert's version is above, the Gall-Peters below. To keep areas equal, note the stretching in one direction compensated by equivalent compression in the other direction. Also called equirectangular projection, equidirectional projection, geographic projection, plate carrée or carte parallelogrammatique projection Other than as a quick and dirty map of the world, this has no redeeming geometrical characteristics, and should never be used for large scale maps. Lambert's latitude of no distortion was the equator. Others have suggested different latitudes (the 'central latitude' of the projection): Lambert's version is above, the Gall-Peters below. To keep areas equal, note the stretching in one direction compensated by equivalent compression in the other direction. The central meridian is zone 18 runs north south, and the others converge--to the east on the left side of the map, and to the west on the right. All meridians and parallels are arcs of circles (except equator and central meridian, which are straight lines or infinite circles) Modified Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area (halve vertical coordinates, and show more meridians to have entire globe visible) Source.
