ODT has been the official marketing arm for the Peters Projection map since 1998. In February 2001, ODT granted permission to the TV show WEST WING to feature the Peters Projection map in their award-winning series. Since then, ODT had been catapulted into the mapping world in a way it never believed possible. Since that time it has published the "What's Up? South!" world map, the Hobo-Dyer Projection map and SEEING THROUGH MAPS book...which is available hardcopy HERE, and is available as an e-book download HERE..
As a prelude to turning the ODT business over to new owners we have digitized many of our valuable resources from our decades of publishing and consulting in the Diversity field, and are now making them available to a wider (and more e-savvy) audience. We also license the digital materials at very economical fees ($49 - $199 for one academic year). Email licensing inquiries to us at ODTstore@ODT.org
ODT's mission of "honoring differences" and "teaching people to see the world from a broader, more inclusive perspective" remain at the core of all ODT's activities.
