The map was devised by Arthur H. Robinson, an American geography professor, in the s because modern mapmakers had become dissatisfied with the distortions inherent to the Mercator projection and wanted a world projection that felt more realistic. As such, the Robinson projection has become more popular than the Mercator. Most popular world maps employ a projection that compromises among these conflicting goals. There are dozens of different world map projections. Most sold by the Map Center use one of the following five: Mercator: Until a generation ago this was the ubiquitous general purpose world map. Now it is out of favor because it greatly exaggerates.
In cartography, a map projection is a way to flatten a globe's surface into a plane in order to make a map. This requires a systematic transformation of the latitudes and longitudes of locations from the surface of the globe into locations on a plane. All projections of a sphere on a plane necessarily distort the surface in some way and to some extent. But if you want a better idea of the relative size of the world’s landmasses, you need a map that distorts shape but preserves area, like the Peters projection Author: Donald Houston.
The Peters World Map is an Equal Area cylindrical projection with standard parallels at 45 degrees thus resulting in a distortion of shape which is stretched about the equator and squashed towards the poles, but having the great advantage that all countries are correct in size in relation to each other. Widely used in educational and business. Robinson projection, which was developed in and is seen in books, is considered to be aesthetically pleasing, but it distorts the size and shape of the : Anonna Dutt.

Robinson Projection. Robinson called this the orthophanic projection (which means “right appearing”), but this name never caught on. In at least one reference book, this projection is termed the Pseudocylindrical Projection with Pole Line, which is highly descriptive (the “pole line” comes from the fact that the North and South Poles on a Robinson projection are shown as.

The Robinson projection is a map of the entire world that shows every landmass and continent all at once. It was created specifically in an attempt to find a compromise between the problem of using a globe as a reference or a flat image. The Robinson projection is a map projection of a world map which shows the entire world at once.
It was specifically created in an attempt to find a good compromise to the problem of readily showing the whole globe as a flat image.
The Robinson projection was devised by Arthur H. Robinson in in response to an appeal from the Rand McNally company, which has used the projection in general-purpose world maps.
Top 10 World Map Projections It may come as a surprise to hear that there is no truly correct way of representing the earth as a flat image.
A world map projection is a visual representation of this challenge using a grid composed of lines of longitude and latitude. Formulated by using other equal-area map projections as transformations.

It also provides its information in a well-organized manner; each of the projections it describes has a page devoted to it, with an illustration depicting the projection (usually a world map if the projection is well-adapted to that purpose, or a map of Antarctica if the projection is better suited to smaller areas), a list of some of the Cited by: Created Date: 1/5/ PM.
The most popular map projection in the world has been around for years now. It was created by Flemish cartographer Gerardus Mercator in – a time when Antarctica hadn’t even been discovered. Mercator was designed as a navigational tool for sailors as it was most convenient to hand-plot courses with parallel rules and triangles on this map.
The poles cannot be represented on the Mercator projection. All meridians can be projected, but the upper and lower limits of latitude are approximately 80° N and S.
Large area distortion makes the Mercator projection unsuitable for general geographic world maps. Uses and applications. Standard sea navigation charts (direction). The original equal-area version of the adaptive composite map projections schema uses the Lambert azimuthal projection for regional maps, and three alternative projections for world maps.
