Three different methods for blending projections are included that offer complementary approaches to the design of world map projections
and are often faster and easier to control than the original method.
Science, technology, and society: How Earth's curved surface is represented differently in various map projections
, which distort the shape and size of land areas.
An alternative general method for inverting arbitrary map projections
without explicit inverse expressions was described by Ipbuker and Bildirici (2002).
The result is a new class of map projections
based on great circle arcs (the geodesics of the sphere) mapping to lines (the geodesics of the plane).
These other map projections
also do not meet the requirements of true scale along both the ground-track direction and off-nadir directions at the sub-satellite point.
for geodesists, cartographers and geographers.

Anderson for providing relevant literature on polyhedral map projections
The chapter concludes with an overview of map projections
and how developable surfaces are used to generate them.
Many kinds of accuracies are associated with map projections
The Robinson projection, one of the map projections
used for this purpose, was the first to be commissioned by a large private corporation.
1998) evaluated a number of methods for constructing triangle subdivisions on spherical triangles and observed that using appropriate inverse map projections
to transform a subdivided planar triangle onto a spherical triangle may be more efficient than using recursively defined procedures.
