Loxodrome Art

The parametric equation of a loxodrome on the unit sphere can be expressed as . This family of curves is parametrized by and . In this Demonstration, you can continuously vary the parameter and see curves obtained by using values of the parameter spaced evenly from to .
Varying the parameter or the number of curves , or changing the range of the bearing angle , yields some interesting artistic images.
