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:
