(mapping)
A conic map projection in which the surface of a sphere or spheroid, such as the earth, is conceived as developed on a cone which intersects the sphere or spheroid along two standard parallels, the cone being spread out to form a plane; for example, the Lambert conformal projection. Also known as secant conic projection.
