Radical Cartography – Projections

Radical Cartography – Projections

Projections are grouped by use, and ordered roughly chronologically by type.

A “standard” parallel/meridian is undistorted, and defines the scale printed on the map.
Projections with a  pink background  are especially useful or common.

Only those projections shown with diagrams are based on simple geometric constructions.
I have compiled a short list of sources and links for your health and happiness.
