Equal-Area maps are more of the true shape, and mercator distorts it more
the difference between mercator projection and equal projection is 250km apart from each other
What is the difference between Mercator projections, Equal Area Projections and Winkel Tripel Projections.
A equal-area map shows the "true" size of Australia.
A Mercator projection map is the most familiar and common to usage in primary education systems. Mercator projections model the continents and oceans into a flattened and rolled cylindrical format. In comparison a Gnomonic projection is also two dimensional and flat but it uses lines which are actual representation of point-to-point s indicating true distance. Another significant difference is scale as Mercator's can represent the entire earth whereas Gnomonics represent a geographical limited area. Lastly Mercator's have the difference of distortion and under representing the actual sizes of Greenland and Continental Africa.
The Mercator projection is used for world maps, and is most accurate between 30 degrees north and south latitude. The further away you go from there, the more exaggerated it becomes. The equal-area projection is also used for world maps, but only represents the continents in equal area with respect to their size, but not location. The conic projection is used for maps that show polar regions, such as Alaska. Imagine an ice-cream cone turned upside down and placed on top of a ball. The only accurate representation would be only in the circle that cone touches the ball.
Discounting the Mercator, which cartographers tend to HATE but is ubiquitous anyway... Probably the Lambert Conformal Conic projection, or the Lambert Azimuthal Equal-Area projection (used by the US National Atlas).

Both Robinson and Mercator projection have severe distortion close to the poles. The Robinson projection is neither equal-area nor conformal. The Mercator projection is conformal in that it preserves angles, however, it distorts the size and shape of large objects, as the scale increases from the Equator to the poles, where it becomes infinite.
Mercator projection is still in common for navigation, due to its unique properties, cartographers agree that it is not suited to large area maps due to its distortion of land area toward the polar regions.
There is no difference in the language between Normandy and the Parisian area.
The difference between and area and grid reference is that an area reference always has 4 numbers, and a grid reference will always have 6 numbers
