The publication of this article unfortunately contained mistakes. The legend of figure 5 and the last section after heading “5.3 Standard Points in the Mollweide Projection" contained incorrect information. The corrected text is given below.

Incorrect figure legend:

Fig. 5 World map in Mollweide's projection. The latitudes of the standard points on the central meridian are $$\pm 50^\circ 45978$$. Standard points are marked with small red circles

Correct figure legend:

Fig. 5 World map in Mollweide’s projection. The latitudes of the standard points on the central meridian are $$\pm 40^\circ 73667$$. Standard points are marked with small red circles

Incorrect text passus:

In this way, we get two values $$\varphi =\pm 50^\circ 45978$$. So, in Mollweide’s projection (Figure 5) there are two standard points $$({\varphi }_{1},{\lambda }_{1})=(50^\circ 45978, 0^\circ )$$ and $$({\varphi }_{2},{\lambda }_{2})=(-50^\circ 45978, 0^\circ )$$.

Correct text passus:

In this way, we get two values $$\varphi =\pm 40^\circ 73667$$. So, in Mollweide’s projection (Figure 5) there are two standard points $$({\varphi }_{1},{\lambda }_{1})=(40^\circ 73667, 0^\circ )$$ and $$({\varphi }_{2},{\lambda }_{2})=(-40^\circ 73667, 0^\circ )$$.
