Remarks The untilted version displayed here wasn’t proposed by Raisz (as far as I know).

Interestingly, a projection that matches the untilted Raisz Half-ellipsoidal was proposed by Michael Ossipoff using the name Orthographic-Aitoff, and developed (but never published) by daan Strebe, labelled pseudorthographic. See mapthematics forum.
