Some benefits to using the Mercator map projection are that the shapes and directions are accurate, latitude and longitude are parallel and it was found useful as a wall map, atlas map, and also maps in books and newspapers for non-geographers. The Mercator map projection is also easy to draw and it is perfect for true direction which made it useful on ships.
