The recent method of deriving linear transformation in 3D physical space described by R. Goldman (see <em>IEEE CG&A</em>, vol. 23, no. 3, 2003, pp. 66-71) provided a unified framework, and works well with quaternion techniques in many transformations, but the other two kinds of the transformations, which are the parallel projection onto a plane and parallel projection onto a line, still work in the vector method. In this article, we propose a novel method to make the deriving linear transformation in the two parallel projections work well with quaternion techniques, therefore all the transformations described in Goldman's article could be derived with quaternion techniques.
