I am trying to reduce the size of my mailbox and I finding some older messages. yuval>  "Michael Gross (adv)" <adv@...> wrote: >> I wrote something about the changes in >> http://mdgrosse.net/pano/albersequalareaconic.txt yuval> thanks! to understand it better, I have a couple of yuval> questions: yuval> P"60.0 20.0" yuval> are these the two standard parallels? yuval> <http://mathworld.wolfram.com/AlbersEqualAreaConicProjection.html>?

Albers in 1805, takes two parameters (its standard parallels, corresponding to the parallels where the cone of projection is secant to the sphere). When both are one of the poles then it becomes a Lambert Equal Area Azimuthal. When both are the horizon, it becomes a Lambert Equal Area Cylindrical. yuval> does one of them have to be always larger than the yuval> other? or are there no limitations? Imagine a cone. The cone cuts the sphere at the place where the parallels are. The order of the parallels does not matter, but their sign does. yuval> is P1=P2 acceptable? if it is not acceptable, will yuval> there be an error code returning? Yes, see above. If P1=P2=90, or 0 then an error is returned. It should automatically compute the corresponding cylindrical or azimuthal. yuval> what are sensible values? I really don't like the projection :) yuval> what is the effect of a larger/smaller difference yuval> between P1 and P2? The cone becomes tangent to the sphere at that point. yuval> what is the effect of smaller/larger numbers?
