Spherical projection

Spherical projection is very similar to a conventional map projection where the horizontal coordinate is the longitude and the vertical coordinate is the latitude.  It can represent a full spherical view.  Straight lines are not preserved and the image shows a characteristic “panoramic distortion”.  Some find this appealing and others find it objectionable.
