In the century that saw the rise of histories of cartography, the cordiform maps became curiosities, only redeemed by the prestige of the cartographers who made them or their relationship with other experiments in map projection
in the early sixteenth century.
We consider some conformal map projections
in the common form as presented by Snyder (1987) as our reference basis.
No reductions in the ellipsoid and map projection
to PQMK sides are used and the coordinates of points Q, M, K will be computed in the system of the site network.

AJ Klinghoffer takes us on an intriguing 1,000-year worldwide journey to illustrate the problem, in the process emphasising the fact that the well-established map projections
of Mercator and Peters can be badly misleading, albeit in very different ways (Mercator's 1569 map has accurate shapes, but exaggerates the Arctic and diminishes tropical lands, Peters' 1972 map is equal-area, but has distorted shapes).
This allows any map elements to be modified on the fly such as layer definitions, map projections
and interface elements.
Over 25 different map projections
are supported including Albers Conic, Mercator, Sinusoidal and Van der Grinten.
In addition to supporting map projections
and coordinate systems, users can now harness the power of 64-bit versions of Windows[R].
One series, "Isometric Systems in Isotropic Space: Map Projections
," 1973-80, predominated.
