This is a Collignon projection. How does that work? I’ll explain: [insert math here].

It’s very straightforward and, thanks to the work of Florian Ledermann, adjustable. At his website, Map Projection Playground, you can experiment with dozens of different world map projections, all of which distort the curved Earth on a plane in different ways. You can also see all of these different types of projections on a single page here.
Ledermann knows his business. He’s engineer and computer programmer who teaches cartography at the Technical University in Vienna. Ledermann executed this project for students in his course titled “Cartographic and Geodetic Foundations for Planners.”
