I've found this map that shows the Pacific Ocean from http://www.transpacificproject.com:
I'd like to produce a similar map, for the same region of the earth and I'd like to use the same projection as I think it illustrates well the distance between the continents.
I've searched for the name of this projection, but I don't think I know the answer yet. At first I thought it was Robison but according to Wikipedia:
The Robinson projection is a map projection of a world map which shows the entire world at once.
Which doesn't seem to be the case. (Can't see Europe and Africa here.)
So, my question is two-fold: what is the name of this projection? Should I use it to illustrate what I said earlier or should I use something else?
