- Map Scale = Chart Length / Earth Length

- Great-Circle Distance: the shortest distance between two points on the curved surface of the earth lies along the great circle passing through these points
- Rhum Line : is a line crossing all meridians at a constant angle.
- This is the line which an aircraft tends to follow when steered by a compass
- It is a greater distance than the great-circle route between the same two points

- In low latitude, a R/L closely approximates a great circle
- Over short distances, a R/L and G.C. nearly coincide
- A R/L between points on or near the same meridian of longitude approximates a great circle

- Conformality (correct representation of angles) :
- To be conformal, a chart must have uniform scale around any points, though not necessarily a uniform scale over the entire map.
2. Meridians and Parallels must intersect at right angle

Mercator and Lambert are conformal

- To be conformal, a chart must have uniform scale around any points, though not necessarily a uniform scale over the entire map.

- The surface of sphere or spheroid is said to be undevelopable because no part of it may be spread out flat without distortion
- A plane, cylinder or cone which can be easily flattened, is called developable surface .
- Projection on these surface are termed Conical, Cylindrical, and Azimuthal Projection

- Map Reading
- Plotting and Measuring Course Directions and Distance

- Comformality (รูปร่างเหมือนจริง)
- Parallels and meridians must intersect at 90°
- Scale or scale expansion must be the same along the meridians as it is along the parallels
- Scale vary point to point but it is the same in all direction (Scale of any point independent from Azimuth)

- The only cylindrical projection used for air NAV is the MERCATOR
- GERHARD MERCATOR design this type of chart first in 1569
- The other types of the Mercator are Oblique Mercator and Transverse Mercator

Plane Mercator

- Its graticule can be imagined by visualizing a cylinder tangent at the equator to a translucent globe with a light source at the center.
- All parallels and meridians on the globe will be projected on the cylinder as straight lines crossing at right angles
- Meridians will be evenly spaced, whereas distance between parallels will increase rapidly with latitude.
- Scale on a Mercator is true only along the equator. Elsewhere it expands as the secant of the latitude, so that at 60°N or S , scale is twice that at the equator.

- Best suited for use Mercator Projection is within 25 - 30° of the equator
- In low latitudes, rhumb line and great circle will be close together; at middle and upper latitudes the amount of divergence becomes quite marked.
- The great-circle route will always be shorter, and it is part of the navigator’s duty to determine whether the bother of plotting and the increased risk of error in flying a series of changing heading is justified by the saving in distance.

- Conformality
- The meridians and parallel appear as straight lines, intersected together at right angle

- Area
- The area is not equal and are Greatly exaggerated in height Lat.

- Scale
- Scale correct only at the equator else where it expand as the secant of Lat .
- Using mid-lat scale to measure distance

- Great Circle appear as curve line convex to the nearest pole
- RHUM Line appear as a straight lines (The meridian parallel together)
- Rhum Line is the lines the success that cross the successive meridian at the same angle

- Rhumb Line
- Between 2 points, the shortest distance is the great circle
- Fly by Rhum Line Track, the pilot must not change HDG all the time

- Position in Lat and Long are easy to plot
- Easy to fly follow R/L track

- Difficulty of measuring large distance accurately
- Conversion angle (C.A) must be applied to Great Circle bearing before plotting
- The chart is useless in polar region above 80°N or S since the polar cannot be shown conversion angle

- The meridians converge towards the poles . A Great Circle (GC) gives shortest distance between 2 positions while R/L running between the same position cut meridian at the same angle.
- It is spiral curve and therefore represent a longer distance that means that there will be a difference between the R/L angle which the GC angle at the start point and the ending point of the track

- Conversion Angle (CA) is the angular difference between a great circle bearing and a R/L bearing
- Or angle between a great circle are joining two places on earth and a R/L between the two places
- CA = (C’(CH) Long /2)× sin mean Lat

- Difference of Long (D’ Long) is the angular difference between two longitude angle from 0 Long to 180º E and 180º W Long such as : from A to B D’Long = 150-15 =135 W

Anti-meridian

- Change of Long (CH.Long) is the angular difference between two Longitude angles (In case of crossing prime-meridian or anti-meridian
- From A to C CH.Long = 15W + 60E = 75E
- From C to B CH.Long = 120E + 30W = 150W

- Difference of Lat (D’Lat) is the angular difference between two Lat. Angle . For instance, the north pole and the equator have a D’Lat of 90º from the north pole to the equator the D’Lat is 90ºS. If from the south pole to equator , D’Lat is 90º N
- From 20ºN to 40ºN D’Lat = 20ºN
- 1º = 60 NM yield 20ºN = 20×60 = 1200 NM

- Change of Lat (CH.Lat) is the angular different between two Lat angle (in case of crossing equator) such as from 30ºN to 30ºS CH.Lat is 60ºS. if from 30ºS to 30ºN CH.Lat 60ºN

- Example, When the A/C is in position Lat35°15’S Long 10°45’E and ground station is Lat 25°45’S Long 02°15’W what is conversion angle value?
Solve

CA=D’(CH) Long /2 × sin mean Lat

CH Long = 10°45’E + 02°15’W

= 13°

Mean Lat = (35°15’S + 25°45’S) / 2

= 61°/2 = 30°30’ = 31°

CA. = (13 /2) × sin 31

= 3°

- The Conic Projection bases on cone tangent reduce earth every place
- The great majority of aeronautical chart in use today are based on conic projection
- There are 2 classes of conic proj.
- Simple Conic Proj with one Standard Parallel (S.P.) a lot of error
- Conic Proj with 2 S.P. And expand out of S.P.

- In a simple conic project the cone is held tangent to the globe along a line of latitude called the “standard parallel”.
- Scale is exact everywhere along this standard parallel, but increase rapidly above and below
- Lambert visualized the cone as making a secant cut, thus giving two standard parallels
- Scale along both is exact. Between them, scale is too small, beyond them too large.

- For equal distribution of scale error, standard parallels are chosen at one-sixth and five-sixths of the total spread of latitude to be represented.
- To map the U.S, whose lat is from 25° to 49 °, standard parallels of 29 ° and 45 ° (one-sixth and five-sixths of the total spread ) would produce an equal distribution of scale error.

- All meridians are straight lines that meet in a common point beyond limits of the map
- Parallels are concentric circles whose center is at the point of intersection of the meridians
- Meridiansand parallels intersect at right angles
- Since scale is very nearly uniform around any point on a given chart, it is considered a conformal projection
- For map reading and radio navigation the projection is unequaled , and most areas of the world through 80 latitude are covered by aeronautical charts with scale of 1:500,000 and 1:1,000,000
- Above 80 , scale on a standard Lambert is too inaccurate for navigational use.

- Conformal
- Scale correct on S.P. contracted inside and expand outside
- Area – not an equal area
- Shape – distortion small
- GC. – curves concave to parallel of origin considered as straight line
- Rhumb Line curves concave to nearer pole
- Graticule – meridians straight line ,
- parallel concentric circle

- A flat surface is used, touching the N.P.
- The light is at the S.P.
- The polar sterographic is modified by using a secant plane instead of tangent plane
