Goode's Interupted Homolosine Projection

Up Catalog

     An interrupted Goode Homolosine projection is a composite map projection of the Sinusoidal and Mollweide projections. It shows the entire world on one map. Developed in 1923 by J.P. Goode, it is described as "an interrupted, pseudocylindrical, equal-area, composite map projection. It is formed from more than one map projection. The Mollweide projection is used to map the polar regions of each interrupted lobe. The Sinusoidal project is used to map the Equatorial regions of each lobe. The two projections are joined at the parallels 40 44' 11.8".
     Global land masses are presented with their areas in proper proportion, with minimal interruption, and minimal overall distortion.
