Map Projections

The shapes are based on the Mercator map projection we’re used to seeing – like Google maps – but adjusted in size according to the Winkel Tripel projection – like National Geographic’s map of the world. To project the spherical surface of our earth onto a flat surface (like the print) we have to make some adjustments. The Winkel Tripel projection is the most accurate representation of size and the Mercator projection provides the most accurate shapes. Region shapes provided by Ted Grajeda.

The World

The print shows the following regions – New York, Iceland, Cuba, Vietnam, Switzerland, North Korea, Syria, Germany, New Zealand, Yemen, Iraq, France, Japan, Manitoba, Madagascar, Colombia.
