They are adapted from the fold-out chart in Understanding Map Projections (Kennedy, ). This chart itself is adapted from a U.S. Geological Survey poster called Map Projections. Projection names are listed across the top and projection properties along the side.

To allow for global use the tool was redesigned to use Lambert Azimuthal projections based on the USGS's Hydro1K continental projections (Steinwand, ; Cotillon and Mathis, ) (RLCM projection blocks figure).

The West Africa region is an exception to this because the modified projection was used when the LULC maps were prepared. Used as the base for the U.S. Geological Survey's ,scale series and for some of the 7'minute and minute quadrangles oft he National Topographic Map Series.
