    A map projection is the transition of latitude and longitude of the location on the surface of a sphere in a systemized manner. It is useful in designing of the maps and also necessary for maps. All the projections deforms and alter the surface of map in some specified way, but some deforms are acceptable and some are not. There can be any number of projections onto the map as there is no specified criteria.
