MAP PROJECTION • A map projection is a systematic transformation of the latitudes and longitudes of locations on the surface of a sphere or an ellipsoid into locations on a plane. • It is the representation of the objects and information on a curved surface in a plane using mathematical and geometric relations. Different cartographers (map-makers) use different map projections. Another reason for this difference is that maps can be created to represent different features of the same places. 6. One map of Europe might show only its major cities and state capitals. Another might depict the country's different vegetation zones. Another map might show.

About Projections Introduction. Having developed a coordinate system and measurement techniques for the Earth, the next problem map makers faced was how to transfer the information from the surface of a 3 dimensional (3D or spherical), irregularly shaped sphere (the Earth) to a 2-dimensional (2D or flat) ‘piece of paper’. This is not a simple as it sounds.

Only a globe is accurate in all of these variables, but globes are impractical to use in the field, and impossible to reproduce in a book. Because of these limitations, we use different map projections to represent the Earth, depending on the needs of the presenter. Below are some of the more common map projections used in oceanography. In a Mercator projection, latitude and longitude are both represented as straight, parallel lines intersecting at right angles (Figure ). This projection is good for navigation as directions are preserved; for example, on any point on the map, north points to the top of the chart.

This book essentially displays a whole lot of different map projections, those formulations by which the curved earth gets represented on flat paper. It usually does this with an outline of the United States, which gives us a chance to see that some projections really work only on much smaller areas because using them on something as big as the US causes serious distortion at Cited by: This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project to make the world’s books discoverable online.

The first two-dimensional projection shows the Earth's surface as viewed from space (Figure 2a-2). This orthographic projection distorts distance, shape, and the size of areas.
