English term or phrase: orthophanic projection
The Orthophanic (meaning 'right appearing') projection, also called the Robinson projection, is a widely-used type of map in which the Earth is shown in a flattened ellipse. In this pseudocylindrical projection, lines of latitude are parallel to the equator, but lines of longitude are elliptical arcs. In a Robinson projection, area is represented accurately, but the distances and compass directions are distorted (for example, compass lines are curved). This type of projection was first made in 1963 by Arthur H. Robinson.

极线伪圆柱投影 或 罗宾森投影
Explanation:
这一投影方法最初被罗宾森命名为“矫形法(orthophanic)”(意为“正确的样子”),但这个名称从来没有被使用,并很快就变成了著名的罗宾森投影。它也被称为“极线伪圆柱投影(Robinson projection)”,因为南北两极变成两条直线而不是其它投影方法中的极点。
