  Azimuthal Equidistant Projection (Hemispheres) Breusing Harmonic
Creator Abū Rayḥān al-Bīrūnī (1000 approx.) A. E. Young (1920)
Group Azimuthal Azimuthal
Property Equidistant Compromise
Other Names
  • Breusing Harmonic Mean
Remarks Modification of Breusing Geometric, Arthur Breusing (1892).
recommended comparisons Breusing Harmonic

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!
