A map projection in which all angles around any point are correctly represented, In such a projection the scale is the same in all directions about any point. Very small shapes are correctly represented, resulting in an orthomorphic projection. The terms conformal and orthomorphic are used synonymously since neither characteristic can exist without the other.
