    I am more inclined towards the systematic, geometrical / analytical
    approach. I am mainly interested in visual representations of how the
    projection is created (cone, cylinder etc. and where he 'light' is coming
    from) and what the resulting graticule looks like. Also, hw suitabe it is
    for various types f navigation and what would be the appearence of great
    circles, small circles and Rhumb lines.
    Hello - have you checked the US Geological Survey page:
    I have:
    "Bulletin 1532--Map Projections Used by the U.S. Geological Survey" as listed at the URL above. If you have specific questions about it that are not covered in the description, feel free to ask--I will check my copy. Hope this helps.
