Mapblast and Mapquest - different projection?


Recommended Posts

I have been using both Mapblast and Mapquest for a while and both have very good online maps, but there is something strange with Mapquest. I think it's because they use a different projection. Compare these two maps of a small island outside Stockholm (about N59 E18). The scale (in North to South direction) must be wrong in at least one of the maps!

Sure. The projection is out for sure on one of the 2 maps. But, does it really matter. I mean really do you measure distances off of these maps? I would suggest using a real topo sheet if you are trying to scale distances. The maps on these sites are for general references only really. Detail is not great but works just fine.
