Map Details

One World - An example of classical European cartographic style, rotates and tilts the globe in three positions to show geographic relationships in a way that no single view can.

Our One World Map is a set of three "orthographic" projections: what the earth would look like if you saw it from space, progressively rotated and tilted so that most of the globe is clearly shown. Shapes and areas are increasingly distorted around the edges of each view, and in each view half the globe is completely hidden. We see objects that way in the real world, and the effect is not bothersome. This is the most "realistic" view, but has obvious practical limitations.
