Cylindrical equal-area

This cylindrical projection is actually several projections, depending on what latitude is selected as the standard parallel. However, they are all equal area and hence non-conformal. All meridians and parallels are straight lines.

ylon0/lat0/scale or Ylon0/lat0/width

The projection is set with y or Y. The projection center is set by lon0/lat0, and the figure size is set with scale or width.
