# PseudoCylindrical¶

class astropy.modeling.projections.PseudoCylindrical(*args, **kwargs)[source] [edit on github]

Base class for pseudocylindrical projections.

Pseudocylindrical projections are like cylindrical projections except the parallels of latitude are projected at diminishing lengths toward the polar regions in order to reduce lateral distortion there. Consequently, the meridians are curved.
