Stereographic Projection

  • Definition: A stereographic projection maps points from the North Pole of a sphere onto the tangent plane at the South Pole and thus there corresponds to each point of the plane a definite point of the sphere. With the exception of the North Pole itself, each point of the sphere corresponds to exactly one point of the plane.

  • Example: The complex numbers can be geographically represented using a stereographic projection.
