2. Image










Projection: Longitude Latitude
Centre: North pole
0°E
90°N
Direction: 90

Distance: shown distorted, only in reference to longitudes and latitudes
Area: shown distorted, only in reference to longitudes and latitudes
Shape: flat, longitudes and latitudes in a flat projection
Direction: centre is the north pole, with Asia above, North America below and Africa on the right side

3. Image

Projection: Sinusodial
Centre: North pole
0°E
90°N
Direction: 0

Distance: shown through lines
Area: shown in projection
Shape: shows the central lines that connect North and South pole as straight line and an edge between the halfs of the globe that are shaped like vaulted parables
Direction North pole in the centre, with Asia on the right side and North America to the left side
