Origin of homolosine projectionfrom Classical Greek homalos (akin to homos, same) + sine
an equal-area map projection of the earth's surface that combines certain features of homolographic and sinusoidal projections so as to allow a minimum of distortion for the continents
A composite of two map projections designed to represent area proportionally to the area on the earth's surface and represent true shapes of continents. Homolosine projections of the earth are usually interrupted in ocean areas. Also called Goode homolosine projection .
Origin of homolosine projectionhomolo(graphic) sine
A map projection with interruptions in the oceans, designed so that the continents appear with their proper size with respect to each other. A homolosine projection map presents the entire world in one view, with the landmasses uninterrupted except for Antarctica and Greenland. Distance and direction are not accurate for all areas of the map.
