Lambert cylindrical equal-area projection
The Lambert cylindrical equal-area projection is a cylindrical equal-area projection used in cartography. Attributed to the Swiss mathematician Johann Heinrich Lambert, this projection is undistorted along the equator, which is its standard parallel. Distortion increases rapidly, however, towards the poles, which become lines instead of points.Map: Strebe, using Geocart
