    Geradus Mercator was a real 16th Century genius. His legacy to the World was named after him - The Mercator Projection.
    Mercator’s 1569 world map used his new cylindrical conformal projection, meaning it’s rectangular in shape and preserves angles across the map. That results in you being able to plot straight lines on the map and use them to give a bearing.

    One consequence of the projection is that it grotesquely exaggerates northern and southern latitudes, warping the size of places relative to one another. Yet despite this weird view of the world, presented almost as a square. This is why even though Greenland is only one-eighth the size of South America, it appears to be larger than South America in the Mercator projection.

    Any straight line drawn on this projection represents an actual compass bearing. These true direction lines are rhumb lines and generally do not describe the shortest distance between points.

    Distances are true along the equator or along the secant latitudes (standard parallels).


    Mathematically the Mercators projection can be described by the equation,

    T(ϕ, θ) = (θ, ln(|sec(ϕ) + tan(ϕ)|))

    NOTE: In 1569, considering that logarithms weren’t known in Europe until Napier’s publication in 1614 and the earliest publicized works in calculus appeared in the 1680s. Thus, Mercator clearly didn’t use the above formula. Rather, he estimated the correct positions of the latitudes using a technique that essentially amounts to numerical integration.
    He was truly a genius.

    හරි සයිස් එකෙන් බලාගන්න නන් ලෝක ගෝලෙකින්ම බලන්න ඕනෙ. ගෝලයක තියෙන පිහිටීමක් ෆ්ලැට් තලයකට ගනිද්දි ඇති වෙන ගැටලුවක් ඕක. එක එක ක්‍රම තියෙනව ඒ වැඩේ කරන්න. ලෝක සිතියම් වල වැඩියෙන්ම පාවිච්චි වෙන්නෙ Mercator projection කියන ක්‍රමේ. මේකෙදි සමකයෙන් ඈතට යන්න යන්න රටවල් ලොකුවට පේනව.



    මේකෙන් පුලුවන් ඕන රටක් ඕන රටක් උඩ තියල සයිස් එක බලන්න.
