orthomorphic projection


orthomorphic projection
A projection in which the scale, although varying throughout the map, is the same in all directions at any point, so that very small areas are represented by the correct shape and the bearings are correct. The meridians and the parallels intersect at right angles. The scale at any point is equal along both the meridians and the parallels.
The Mercator projection as an example of orthomorphic projection.
