The Mollweide projection is a pseudocylindrical map projection generally used for global maps of the world (or sky). Also known as the Babinet projection, homalographic projection, homolographic projection, and elliptical projection. As its more explicit name Mollweide equal area projection indicates, it sacrifices fidelity to angle and shape in favor of accurate depiction of area. It is used primarily where accurate representation of area takes precedence over shape, for instance small maps depicting global distributions.

The projection was first published by mathematician and astronomer Karl (or Carl) Brandan Mollweide (1774 - 1825) of Leipzig in 1805. It was popularized by Jacques Babinet in 1857, giving it the name homalographic projection. The variation homolographic arose from frequent nineteenth century usage in star atlases.

What exactly this holographic projection means ?

Suma said: (Aug 12, 2014)  
Holography is a technique which enables three-dimensional images (holograms) to be made. It involves the use of a laser, interference, diffraction, light intensity recording and suitable illumination of the recording. The image changes as the position and orientation of the viewing system changes in exactly the same way as if the object were still present, thus making the image appear three-dimensional.

The holographic recording itself is not an image; it consists of an apparently random structure of either varying intensity, density or profile.

Is holographic picture of small area is same as photographic picture of that area?

An equal area map projection so the correct answer is AREA.

What's sedimentary rock?

Ram said: (Mar 12, 2015)  
@ Adamu.

Porous rocks are called the sedimentary rocks, mean any liquid can be extracted out through these rocks.

Example: Petroleum, etc.

It is also known as the Babinet projection, homalographic projection, homolographic projection, and elliptical projection. The projection trades accuracy of angle and shapes for the accuracy of proportions in an area, and as such is used where that property is needed, such as maps depicting global distributions.
