(of a map projection or a mathematical mapping) preserving the correct angles between directions within small areas, though distorting distances.

*‘He also obtained important results on conformal mappings showing that angles were preserved on the boundary almost everywhere.’*Also called orthomorphic*‘His doctoral thesis is an important contribution to conformal mappings of multiply connected plane domains.’**‘He is also known for applications of the kernel function to conformal mappings.’**‘He worked on geodesy but became interested in conformal map projections where he invented a quincuncial map projection using elliptic functions.’**‘He also worked on conformal mappings and potential theory, and he was led to study boundary value problems for partial differential equations and the theory of various functionals connected with them.’*

Mid 17th century (in the sense ‘conformable’): from late Latin conformalis, from con- ‘together’ + formalis ‘formal’. The current sense was coined in German.
