The equidistant conic projection was described by the Greek philosopher Claudius Ptolemy about A.D. 150. It is neither conformal or equal-area, but serves as a compromise between them. The scale is true along all meridians and the standard parallels.
dlon0/lat0/lat1/lat2/scale or Dlon0/lat0/lat1/lat2/width
The projection is set with d or D. The projection center is set by lon0/lat0 and two standard parallels for the map are set with lat1/lat2. The figure size is set with scale or width.
import pygmt fig = pygmt.Figure() fig.coast( shorelines="1/0.5p", region=[-88, -70, 18, 24], projection="D-79/21/19/23/12c", land="lightgreen", water="lightblue", frame="afg", ) fig.show()
