Sinusoidal Map for The Projection Collection


June 8, 2022

My contribution to Daniel Huffman’s Projection Collection project, a set of trading cards where each card is a different map projection.

The map itself is a Sinusoidal Projection, and was made in QGIS using the ‘1981’ polygons from Project Linework. The style is supposed to be vaguely reminiscent of a monochrome green CRT monitor – I think it was the combination of the projection’s bulge and the word ‘sinusoidal’ which brought that aesthetic to mind when I made the map.

It was really nice to get to map alongside (in a sense) many cartographers whose work I really admire by contributing to the project.

I spy my map!
