View a list of the supported Mapping Toolbox™ map projections and their properties.
Map projections are influenced and constrained by five characteristic properties.
Most map projections can be categorized into three families based on the cylinder, cone, and plane geometric shapes.
A projection aspect is the orientation of a map on the page or display screen. An orientation vector controls the map projection aspect.
Variable projection parameters control the appearance of map projections.
An inverse projection transforms plane coordinates to the spherical geographic coordinates.
All map projections introduce distortions compared to maps on globes.
This example shows how to perform the same projection
computations that are done within Mapping Toolbox display commands
