Kavraisky V Projection

Classification

Pseudocylindrical

Identifier

kavrsky5

Graticule

Meridians: Complex curves converging at the poles. A sine function is used for y, but the meridians are not sine curves.

Parallels: Unequally spaced straight lines.

Poles: Points.

Symmetry: About the Equator and the central meridian.

Features

This is an equal-area projection. Scale is true along the fixed standard parallels at 35º, and 0.9 true along the Equator. This projection is neither conformal nor equidistant.

Parallels

The fixed standard parallels are at 35º.

Remarks

This projection was described by V. V. Kavraisky in 1933.

Example

landareas = shaperead('landareas.shp','UseGeoCoords',true);
axesm ('kavrsky5', 'Frame', 'on', 'Grid', 'on');
geoshow(landareas,'FaceColor',[1 1 .5],'EdgeColor',[.6 .6 .6]);
tissot;
