Because there is only a small amount of distortion over a local area conic map projection is used for road maps and weather maps. Correct answer: This projection is based on the concept of the projection of the earth's surface on a conical surface, which is then unwound in the plane of the surface and the maps are made by projecting points and lines from a globe in the shape of a cone. These maps are rarely used for a full map of the world.
