Winkel projection

From HandWiki

Winkel projection is a group of three projections proposed by German cartographer Oswald Winkel (7 January 1874 – 18 July 1953) in 1921. Winkel projections use arithmetic mean of the equirectangular projection and other projections. Winkel I projection uses sinusoidal projection.[1] Winkel II projection uses Mollweide projection.[2] Winkel Tripel (Winkel III) projection uses Aitoff projection. Winkel I and II projections are pseudocylindrical projections. Winkel tripel projection is the most famous projection in these three projections.
