What's Up? South! Map Explanation - 4 pages - free
This convenient handout is included in every large format What's Up? South! Map that we sell. It provides background on different map projections (including Mercator's) and some historical background.The What's Up? South! Map challenges basic notions of UP and DOWN. Our position at ODTmaps was that all projections possess desirable but mutually exclusive attributes and since no single projection can show both size and shape accurately...multiple of perspectives are valuable and necessary.
This informative handout shows the Peters in comparison to the Mercator, Van der Grinten, Robinson, Winkel Tripel, Eckert IV, and Goode's Homolosine projections. It also provides resources & references to ODT's videos, “Many Ways to See the World”. The handout also includes up-to-date references at the end for the serious map student.
