When using a sphere as the map shape, the (x,y,z) value of a point is converted into spherical coordinates. For purposes of texture mapping, we keep just the latitude and the longitude information. To find the color in the texture map, the latitude is converted into an x-coordinate and the longitude is converted into a y-coordinate.
