The map projection having transformation equations

for the normal aspect, where is the longitude ,
is the standard longitude (horizontal center of the
projection), is the latitude , and is the so-called "standard latitude."

Special cases of cylindrical equal-area projections are summarized in the following table (Maling 1993).

The inverse transformation equations for the normal aspect are

An oblique form of the cylindrical equal-area projection is given by the equations

and the inverse formulas are

A transverse form of the cylindrical equal-area projection is given by the equations

and the inverse formulas are
