Inverse Gnomonic Projections of Plane Regions
This Demonstration shows inverse gnomonic projections of flat surface areas lying in a horizontal plane tangent to the projection sphere.

Thomas Burke
THINGS TO TRY
Rotate and Zoom in 3D
Slider Zoom
SNAPSHOTS
DETAILS
Snapshot 1: inverse gnomonic projections of lines are great semicircles
Snapshot 2: inverse gnomonic projections of circles typically are not circles
Snapshot 3: inverse gnomonic projection density increases with the projected region's distance from the tangent point
