Fundamentals of mapping icsm homepage mapping home overview history of mapping some commonly used map projections these are two examples of maps using stereographic projection over polar areas. Since gerardus mercator presented his mercator global map projection in 1569, numerous map projections have been developed and scores of projections are currently used a conic projection for areas in the mid-latitudes with east- west extent, an azimuthal projection for displaying polar areas. As a few of my colleagues are working with data from polar regions i thought i'd have a go at creating some polar stereographic background maps and seeing what could and couldn't be done.
