The American Polyconic projection may be visualized as "rolling" a cone tangent to the Earth at all parallels of latitude, instead of a single cone as in a normal conic projection. Each parallel is a circular arc of true scale. The scale is also true on the central meridian of the projection. The American Polyconic projection is used in Brazil and the South Pacific.
