July: Winkel Tripel Bartholomew

Winkel Tripel Bartholomew
Creator Oswald Winkel (1921)
Group Lenticular
Property Compromise
Other Names
  • Winkel Tripel Times Atlas
  • Winkel Tripel φ0 = 40°
Remarks This version was designed by John Bartholomew (about 1955), it uses 40° North and South as standard parallels instead of 50°28´ in Winkel’s original design.

Is there anything I can say about this projection that I haven’t already said in the Happy Birthday, Winkel Tripel blogpost? Well, I could note that it is still (since 50 years or something) used in the german Diercke Weltatlas, for the main and many thematic world maps …

… I could point out that it looks very good in the OGABO and the plagal version …

…and I might casually mention that however good the projection, there is always room for improvement, of which we will see a few examples shortly.

But other than that, I really don’t know anything to say.
Bis die Tage!
