conic projection with two standard parallels
conic projection with two standard parallels[¦kän·ik prə′jek·shən with‚tü ¦stan·dərd ′par·ə·lelz]
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.
