## What are the advantages and disadvantages of the Goode projection?

In 1923, J. Paul Goode merged the Mollweide (Homolographic) projection and the Sinusoidal projection to create Goode’s Homolosine Interrupted. The advantage of this projection is each of the continents are the correct size and in proportion to one another. The disadvantage is distance and direction are not accurate.

What is distorted on the Goode map?

Shapes, directions, angles, and distances are generally distorted. The scale along all parallels in the sinusoidal part, between 40°44’12” north and south, and along the central meridians of the projection is accurate.

### What are the advantages of the Goode Homolosine projection?

The Goode homolosine projection (or interrupted Goode homolosine projection) is a pseudocylindrical, equal-area, composite map projection used for world maps. Normally it is presented with multiple interruptions. Its equal-area property makes it useful for presenting spatial distribution of phenomena.

What are disadvantages of map projections?

Disadvantages: Mercator projection distorts the size of objects as the latitude increases from the Equator to the poles, where the scale becomes infinite. So, for example, Greenland and Antarctica appear much larger relative to land masses near the equator than they actually are.

## What is bad about Goode’s projection?

It can not display the entire Earth on a world map. The north and south poles are not visible because they lie at infinity in the Mercator Cartesian coordinate space. It is inappropriate for the presentation of areal relationships because the Mercator map projection is a conformal, not an equal-area map projection.

What is the most accurate flat map projection to use?

AuthaGraph. This is hands-down the most accurate map projection in existence. In fact, AuthaGraph World Map is so proportionally perfect, it magically folds it into a three-dimensional globe. Japanese architect Hajime Narukawa invented this projection in 1999 by equally dividing a spherical surface into 96 triangles.

### What are the pros and cons of wind energy?

There also some *cons* when it comes to wind energy: Wind energy is not considered to be reliable. It is a fluctuating source of energy. Electricity from wind energy must be stored (i.e. batteries). Wind turbines are a potential threat to wildlife such as birds and bats. Deforestation to set up a wind farm creates an environmental impact.

What kind of projection is the Goode projection?

Goode (1923) Goode is an interrupted, equal-area, composite projection composed of 12 regions that form six lobes, each the top section of a Mollweide projection, carefully grafted on to six interior regions along the equator.

## Are there any disadvantages to projecting the oceans?

But there are significant disadvantages too; obviously there is the problem of the oceans (and Greenland) being split apart in the figure below. Other versions of this projection may keep the oceans somewhat intact, but then the continents are disrupted. There is no way to keep both the oceans and the continents intact with this projection.

Why is wind energy not considered to be reliable?

Wind energy is not considered to be reliable. It is a fluctuating source of energy. Electricity from wind energy must be stored (i.e. batteries). Wind turbines are a potential threat to wildlife such as birds and bats.
