  Airy Minimum-error Azimuthal Breusing Harmonic
Creator George Biddell Airy (1861) A. E. Young (1920)
Group Azimuthal Azimuthal
Property Compromise Compromise
Other Names
  • Breusing Harmonic Mean
Remarks Modification of Breusing Geometric, Arthur Breusing (1892).
recommended comparisons Breusing Harmonic Airy (Hem.)
Azimuthal Equidistant (Hem.)
Nicolosi Globular
This pairing is among the list of recommended pairings – but why?
These two projections nearly identical, so you might spot the differences in direct comparision only.
Remark: On these two projections, »scaled to fit« and »scaled to same width« will be quite identical!
