The U.S. Geological Survey used the polyconic projection for many years as the basis of its topographic quadrangle map series until the conformal Transverse Mercator succeeded it.

Geological Survey Open File Report –, 23 p., https://doi. 1 Introduction. Map projections provide methods for representing the three-dimensional surface of the earth as two-dimensional plots. Although most oceanographers are likely to be familiar with the basic ideas of map projection, they may find it helpful to consult the wide literature on this topic, whether to learn about the details of individual projections and to get advice on the best.

Snyder gives an overview of map projection equations in his book entitled 'Map Projections used by the U.S. Geological Survey'. A number of equations are given at World of Mathematics. Map projection equations have a number of parameters such as.

radius of the sphere (R) or equatorial (a) and polar radius (b) of the reference ellipsoid. A globe is the only correct map of the world.

To create a flat representation of earth’s curved surface something has to "give". When mapping a small area, distortion is negligible. On a map of the United States, distortion may affect careful long distance measurements but is of little concern to non-technical users.
