Abstract:Early in 1953 the writer was asked to design and compute a map to illustrate an air route from New Zealand to the United Kingdom. The projection to be used for the map was not in doubt; the air route is contained within a narrow belt crossing Australia, the Indian Ocean, and the Mediterranean, and an oblique Mercator projection erected upon a great circle centrally situated within this belt was an obvious choice.
