I've always thought they are empirically derived: once you have your axial compressor phisically in a bench, you set both a rotational speed and a mass flow throught the turbomachine then you measure the pressure ratio so you can fix a point on the map. After, It will be made for several mass flows therefore defining a particular constant speed line.

It is correct?
