Miller cylindrical projection
The Miller cylindrical projection is a modified Mercator projection, proposed by Osborn Maitland Miller in 1942. The latitude is scaled by a factor of 4⁄5, projected according to Mercator, and then the result is multiplied by 5⁄4 to retain scale along the equator. Hence:
In GIS applications, this projection is known as: "EPSG:54003 - World Miller Cylindrical"
