Pseudo cylindrical. Coordinates are the average of the Mollweide and Equirectangular projections. Meridians are equally spaced curves, curving toward the central meridian. The central meridian is a straight line. Parallels are equally spaced straight lines. The length of the poles and the central meridian depends on the standard parallels.
The parallels and the central meridian.
Neither conformal nor equal area. Useful only for world maps.
