## Geography, coordinates, and projections

*How points on Earth are approximated, referenced, and displayed*

Changing the map projection

Magic Maps supports several map projections

Adjusting map projection parameters

Map projections can be customized via projection parameters

About coordinate reference systems

A coordinate reference system is a method of referring to points on the Earth

About Earth models

Magic Maps can approximate the shape of the Earth as a perfect sphere or flattened spheroid

About map projection parameters

Map projections are defined by their standard parallels, central meridian, and model of Earth

About map projections

A map projection transforms points on the Earth to a two-dimensional surface
