Stereographic projection is used to project a sphere to a 2D plane. The algorithm in Cartesian coordinates looks like this:

[1] (X,Y)=(x1z,y1z) [1] \ (X, Y) = (\frac{x}{1 - z}, \frac{y}{1 - z}) [2] (X,Y,Z)=(2X1+X2+Y2,2Y1+X2+Y2,1+X2+Y21+X2+Y2) [2] \ (X, Y, Z)=\left(\frac{2 X}{1+X^{2}+Y^{2}}, \frac{2 Y}{1+X^{2}+Y^{2}}, \frac{-1+X^{2}+Y^{2}}{1+X^{2}+Y^{2}}\right)
