PAR16/15 to PAR1:1 (square) (wiki) is reference conversion if you keep standard amiga resolutions to a 4:3 aspect ratio. In short, you squeeze 5:4 (640x512) into 4:3 (CRT visible area). Todays visible 4:3 area is 640x480 so you have to rescale 640x512 to 640x480 for proper aspect ratio on todays square pixel output. Technically this isn't pixel exact any more.

(Trivia paragraph removed. Too confusing.)
