The resulting Goode homolosine projection is most common in its interrupted form.

They are the equal-area cylindrical, sinusoidal, Mollweide, Eckert IV, Hammer-Aitoff, interrupted Goode homolosine, integerized sinusoidal projections, and the equal area global gridding method with a fixed latitudinal metric distance (Seong 2005).
The Mollweide, Hammer-Aitoff and Goode interrupted homolosine projections show mean resampling accuracies of about 0.
Although best known for the homolosine projection and the initiator of Goode's School Atlas, he taught some of the first courses on thematic cartography and graphics at Chicago.
This is hardly surprising, given that he was active in the development of his own homolosine projection at this time.
To better preserve areas, the interrupted Goode homolosine projection has been recommended for global-raster GIS databases because it uses six lobes, each with its own central meridian (resulting in 12 regions for implementation), and can be composited into a single world view (Steinwand 1994).
Imagine) and some original programming for the Goode homolosine projection (unavailable in commercial software at the time of this research), the 12 quadrilaterals were projected to four global projections using a standard parallel and central meridian of zero degrees: Lambert's equal-area cylindrical, Mollweide, Robinson, and the Goode homolosine (which is a combination of the sinusoidal projection at latitudes below 40 [degrees] 40' and the Mollweide projection at higher latitudes) interrupted by oceans.
The Mollweide and Goode homolosine projections show relatively high accuracy regardless of latitude (with slight differences at 0 [degrees], which is expected since the Goode uses the sinusoidal equations at that latitude and 75 [degrees] which is unexpected since the Goode uses the Mollweide equations above 40 [degrees] 44' latitude).
Unfortunately, the commercial software tools we used for re-projection could not generate the Goode homolosine projection from the Lambert azimuthal source or from an equivalent in geographic coordinates.
The Goode homolosine projection is currently not available in most commercial GIS packages.
Representation is most accurate in the Mollweide projection, followed by the Goode homolosine, Lambert's equal-area cylindrical and Robinson projections.
