**"Equidistant"**Being at an equal distance from the same point or thing.

In the equidistant projections scale is preserved (not distorted) in the direction perpendicular to the line of zero distortion or radially outwards from a point of zero distortion. The name arises from the fact that in the normal aspect of Cylindrical, Conic and Azimuthal projections the principal scale is preserved along the meridians and therefore all parallels on the map are equidistantly spaced.

The same distance.

equally distant from any two or more points

Equally distant. For example, any two points on a circle are equidistant from the center.
