Africa´s World 11 x 17 in. - paper
This Africa-centered global perspective on the planet is an azimuthal equal area map. The map is centered on the Equator and 15 degrees East as a convenient geographical center point of the continent. The world is shown as spreading outwards in all directions from that point. It provides information about distance from this central point in Africa to every other location in the world. It also shows all the countries at the same scale and in proportion. It is a great map for residents of Africa, but not much help if you don’t live there. And because any map has to distort SOME aspect of the truth, the further you get from Africa, the worse the distortion of shapes.
