Designed by Ty Johnston of w/studio, this print places Manitoba on a global stage and gives context to its vastness. Part tribute, part data visualization, it connects regions previously isolated. This print is part of w/studio's series of geographic and environmental visualizations.

Size of Manitoba

Manitoba is 649,950 square kilometres – This is equal to 160,606,143 acres and roughly 80 million CFL football fields.

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.

The World

The print shows these regions – Texas, England, Iraq, Japan, Iceland, North Korea, Colombia, Kenya, Italy, Thailand, Germany, Paraguay, Egypt, Romania, Cuba, and New Zealand.
