World outline map by country.

Plate carreé projection. This simple cylindrical projection converts the globe into a Cartesian grid. Each rectangular grid cell has the same size, shape, and area. All the graticular intersections are 90°. The traditional Plate Carrée projection uses the equator as the standard parallel. The grid cells are perfect squares. In this projection, the poles are represented as straight lines across the top and bottom of the grid.

Line of contact

Tangent at the equator.

Linear graticules

All meridians and all parallels.
