AdjectiveEdit
equidistant (not comparable)
 occupying a position midway between two ends or sides
 occupying a position that is an equal distance between several points. Note that in a onedimensional space this position can be identified with two points, in a twodimensional space with three points (not on the same straight line), and in a threedimensional space with four points (not in the same plane).
 (cartography) Describing a map projection that preserves scale. No map can show scale correctly throughout the entire map but some can show true scale between one or two points and every point or along every meridian and these are referred to as equidistant.
