The chapter ends by describing the relationship between the grid and projection. The next chapter focuses on the. Polyconic Projection. A class of map projections in which the parallels are represented by a system of non-concentric circular arcs with centers lying on the straight line representing the central meridian.

For example, the polyconic projection is not at all suitable for a singlesheet map of the United States or of a large State, although it has been so employed.
