The 'AuthaGraph' World Map Poster
The Mercator Projection, named after geographer Gerardus Mercator (1512 ~ 1594), is the map of the world first revealed in 1569 that is still the generally accepted image we have of the planet. It is flawed, however, in that it dramatically distorts the sizes of Antarctica and Greenland (Antarctica was yet to be discovered when the Mercator Projection was invented).
The AuthaGraph by contrast, is a modern innovative map that frames the world's physical components (continents, seas, etc.) in a 2D rectangle, while representing their relative sizes as accurately as possible. Antarctica, for instance, can be seen at the bottom right, close to South America, Africa and Australia.
