Maps of the World Infographic

By Badger Maps

Posted in Product

Our first Badger infographic about maps! This infographic goes into detail about why the Mercator projection is our standard map of the world, and why that gives us a distorted view of things.  See how Africa is 14 times the size of greenland, and why nautical navigation influenced the dominance of the Mercator.  Also learn about the Galls-Peter projection, the Winkel-Tripel projection, and the Goode Homosaline projection and why they are a better geographic representation of our world.

Some great sources of information about the Mercator:
