Combining world map projections

Cartographers have developed various techniques for deriving new projections from existing projections. The goal of these techniques is to substitute a disadvantageous trait of one of the source projections with the second source projection. This chapter discusses creating new projections by the juxtaposition and blending of two existing projections. It also presents a new approach for selectively combining projection characteristics. The emphasis in this chapter is on projections for world maps, as the described techniques are most useful for this scale.
