homolosine projection

URL copied Share URL
  1. [map projections] An equal-area map projection that is a composite of two pseudo-cylindrical projections—the Mollweide projection for higher latitudes and the sinusoidal projection for lower latitudes. The two projections join at 40°44´11.8" north and south, where the linear scale of the two projections matches. Sometimes called an uninterrupted homolosine projection.
