It'll take my head a lot of work to get used to any of those and I suspect they will not be so good for planning journeys on a world scale. I wonder whether this is more useful on a country by country basis. Perhaps it is one of those situations where present imperfection is more of a perceived problem than a real one.
Very interesting. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Katherine! Since studying Geography at A level in the sixth form, I have been very aware of the implications of mapping a spherical planet. This video reinforces the point but I am not convinced that the algorithmic "solution" is particularly helpful.
Fascinating! I'm a frustrated wannabe amateur cartographer, myself.
Thanks for your comments folks. I liked this clip for the way it suggested different ways of thinking about our planet..
