Wagner VII.b vs. Wagner VII
|Wagner VII.b||Wagner VII|
|Creator||Karlheinz Wagner (1941)||Karlheinz Wagner (1941)|
|Remarks||In 1941, Wagner introduced four variants of the projection that was derived from the azimuthal equal-area projection. The first variant is nowdays known as Wagner VII or Hammer-Wagner. This is one of the other three.
As far as I know, there’s no established name for this variant, so I decided to call it Wagner VII.b here.
|My personal favourite among the equal-area projections! :-)|
