Hi there,

does anybody know what projection this is? I thought it was azimuthal equidistant, another option is Bonne, but neither projection gives me the result as the image shown.

I'm using mapublisher in conjuction with natural-earth data.

Thanks!

Koen.

It is relatively close to the picture of the Briesemeister projection in Voxland and Snyder's An Album of Map Projections, p. 163. So I think it is an oblique case of some other world projection like Hammer.

Thank you very much Melita!

Unfortunately Mapublisher doesn't carry the Briesemeister projection. It's really close. I also can't get it to work with a Hammer projection within Mapublisher.

I have to search a bit more.

I think i recognize the projection as a Bertin 1950. Jacques Bertin was a french cartographer, author of the somewhat famous "Semiology of graphics", but also of several projections.

thanks, l.jegou, It really look like it, unfortunately I don't know how to use this projection in Mapublisher since it isn't supported.

This is  the "Projection à compensation régionale" described by Jacques Bertin 1953 (there is an error on the link given above).

 

See Bertin's book "Sémiologie graphique", p. 295, where you can find many different projections, including 4 signed by Bertin: 1950, 1952, 1953 and 1954.

Indeed, i confirm Fil statement, there is an error on the Science Po website i linked above, the projection is a JB 1953.
