Robinson Projection

Jump to: navigation, search

The Robinson projection is a world map projection developed in the early 1960s by the distinguished geographer Arthur H. Robinson as a compromise between equal-area and conformal projections that produces a good quality overall view of the world map. This projection was widely used by Rand McNally and National Geographic since about 1970, but has since fallen out of favor. In the late 1990s, the Winkel Tripel projection replaced the Robinson projection as the standard projection for world maps made by the National Geographic Society.
