  Azimuthal equal-area Breusing Harmonic
Creator Johann Heinrich Lambert (1772) A. E. Young (1920)
Group Azimuthal Azimuthal
Property Equal-area Compromise
Other Names
  • Lambert azimuthal equal-area projection
  • Breusing Harmonic Mean
Remarks Modification of Breusing Geometric, Arthur Breusing (1892).
recommended comparisons Breusing Harmonic Airy (Hem.)
Azimuthal equal-area
Azimuthal Equidistant (Hem.)
Nicolosi Globular
This pairing is among the list of recommended pairings – but why?
While very much alike at first glance, in direct comparision the differences become quite obvious.
Remark: On these two projections, »scaled to fit« and »scaled to same width« will be quite identical!
