A conformal projection of the conical type, on which all geographic meridians are represented by straight lines which meet in a common point outside the limits of the map, and the geographic parallels are represented by a series of arcs of circles having this common point for a centre. Meridians and parallels intersect at right angles, and angles on the earth are correctly represented on the projection. This projection may have one or two standard parallels along which the scale is held exact.
