Mon Jan 15, 2024 Rounded Variants of Wagner VII

Today, I’ve added three projections to My Projection Collection: Wagner VII with rounded corners was created by Bojan Šavrič and Bernhard Jenny in 2015 for a study[1] to compare projections with edged vs. curved pole line corners. That was its sole purpose, but it is a very fine projection and I would have added it earlier if I had had the means to do create the needed images.

It inspired me to create the Wagner VII with rounded corners and point poles, pointed into the right direction by Peter Denner who came up with the Wagner VII, no corners, with point poles.

I’ll say more about the matter soon – this blogpost will be expanded in (hopefully) a few days.
