Distance from Equator
Click this tab for sliders that control the distance of parallels from the equator. Dragging a slider to the left shortens the distance and to right lengthens distance. Distances are relative: 0 represents the equator and 1 represents the poles.
Selecting Remove Distance Adjustments in the Options popup menu resets the distance of parallels from the equator to the default settings, which are equidistant.
