What is the difference between a conformal map and an equal-area map?

To determine

The difference between a conformal map and an equal-area map.

Explanation

Equal area maps are the ones in which the correct area relationships are maintained. The areas on the map represent the same size proportions to each other as in reality. For instance, the distance between any two parts of the map is a portion and wherever the portion is placed it covers the same distance on the Earth. These are used for areal comparisons, spatial distributions and so on...
