Fri Sep 09, 2022 13 Projections for 2022 (Part 9)
A collection of my own experiments
(see Intro for further explanations)
September: Panty Projection
|Original Creator||Daniel “daan” Strebe (1992)|
|Remarks||Fusion of Albers conic and Bonne projections.|
This is a very useful projection – well, in case you’re a manufacturer of underwear who is searching for a new emblem that conveys the idea that you’re a global player in your line of business. And lo! It’s equal-area, too, so none of you valued customers’ countries are neglected.
Moreover, the projection contains a hidden treasure: While at first glance, admittedly, it looks more like comfortable but not-too-sexy panties – the visualization of distortions reveals a skimpy, sassy bikini bottom:
So, if you’re an manufacturer of underwear – contact me! I look forward to becoming rich as a Lannister. 😁
But, wait – the wads of notes will have to go to Daniel “dann” Strebe, who created the
Amulet Projection, shown below with a standard parallel at 45° North,
while I just set the standard parallel to 6°N and called it the Panty Projection.
Damn. So much for the wealth!
Next month, I’ll be more serious again. It will also be the last projection of the calendar which I haven’t shown at all so far.
