- What is good about Robinson projection?
- What is the advantage of a Robinson projection over a Mercator projection?
The Robinson projection is unique. Its primary purpose is to create visually appealing maps of the entire world. It is a compromise projection, it does not eliminate any type of distortion, but it keeps the levels of all types of distortion relatively low over most of the map.
Unlike the Mercator projection, the Robinson projection has both the lines of altitude and longitude evenly spaced across the map.
