What Is Another Name for an Oval Shaped Projection Map?

Answer

Another name for an oval shaped projection map is Mercator map. These maps were primarily developed for marine navigation, but were proven not to be satisfactory because proportions of land masses and their orientations to each other were not accurate. However, any map presented on a flat surface will show distortion of the globe.
