There are two main projections used for graphic map images. Mercator and Robinson. This is the Robinson map projection and is a projection that shows the entire world at once. It is seen as a fair compromise to showing the world as a flat projection.

All Different Kinds of World Maps

There are many different kinds of maps on the market. From free world map that you can find on Google Images or maybe on our free site, http://www.freeusandworldmaps.com to ones that costs a bundle. But before we get there is is good to identify the kind of map you are looking for. Maps come in what is called a projection. A projection is a way of translating a three-dimensional real surface into a two-dimensional picture like a map. The best know style of map projection is called a Mercator Projection.

The Mercator Projection is what is called a cylindrical map projection. Originally designed by the Flemish geographer and cartographer Gerardus Mercator. These go back to 1569. This the map that is usually formed in a rectangle shape. With this map the area along the equator is fairly accurate but as we move towards the poles the land masses become distorted. Some of the other popular projections are Robinson, Sinusoidal, Peters and Mollweide.

To learn more about the Mercator Projection check out the Wikipedia link.

Free World Map and Projections

There are a lot of different kinds of projections of the world. In fact it is actually all just math and by changing the formulas you can come up with a wide variety of different projections.

Here are just few of them highlighted at Free World Map

Albers equal-area conic projection, this is a conic, or equal area map projection

Azimuthal equidistant projection, often use for polar projection where all of the distances are measured from the center of the map. This projection is used on the United Nations Flag.

Behrmann Projection, this is a cylindrical projection

Bonne projection, sometimes called a Sylvanus Projection, or an equal-area map projection.

Craig retroazimuthal projection, this was created by James Ireland Craig in 1909, a cylindrical projection and sometimes also know as the Mecca projection because is is cented on Mecca in Saudi Arabia

Just a few of them, we will cover more later here at Free World Map

      thanks for the comment, Most of the map clip art products are pretty general and don't really go into degree. I think the best option for this might be to look at www.mapresources.com, they do add some degree info to their maps. After that I might look at google.
