List of supported map projections map projection this is a compromise projection used for world maps simple conic this conic projection can be based. When you place a cone on the earth and unwrap it, this results in a conic projection examples are albers equal area conic and the lambert conformal conic. Map projection's wiki: a map projection is a systematic transformation of the latitudes and longitudes of locations from the surface of a sphere or an ellipsoid into. A lambert conformal conic projection (lcc) is a conic map projection used for aeronautical charts, portions of the state plane coordinate system, and many national. Conic projections a conic projection is derived from the projection of the globe onto a cone placed over it for the normal aspect, the apex of the cone lies on the.
Chapter 7: map projections regular conic (e) polar azimuthal (plane) an ideal map projection retains all these graticule characteristics through the. Schjerning's first projection, or the north polar equidistant conic with cone constant 1/2 a rare case of conic map designed for the whole world. The ellipsoidal case has been developed for noteworthy large-scale conic maps on the other hand, conic projections are in the orthographic conic projection. To map middle latitudes, use a conic projection but it doesn't tell you how to choose between a conic and a cylindrical when an azimuthal has been ruled out.

Map projections flattening the earth if you have a map projection that preserves one some projections, such as albers equal area conic. 23 what are map projections the result of a sinusoidal projection is shown above conic projections yield straight meridians that converge toward a single point.
Conic projection definition, a map projection based on the concept of projecting the earth's surface on a conical surface, which is then unrolled to a plane surface. In the conic projection the graticule is projected onto a cone tangent, or secant, to the globe along any small circle (usually a mid-latitude parallel.
