Hobo-Dyer Equal Area - Two-sided: North-up Africa-centered/South-up Australia-centered

A map that not only shows true size comparisons, but also turns the world upside down to challenge North-South perceptions. Based on the popularity of the Peters concept of equal area, we produced a similar map, the Hobo Dyer Projection, which offers less elongation than the Peters map but more compression at the poles. This is the map that President Jimmy Carter used to display his agency's efforts at his Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in December 2002. Prices range from $8.25 for 11''x17'' paper folded map to $424 for a 64'' wide custom map. For larger quantities, special pricing is available to schools and not-for-profit organizations. Also see our new Hobo-Dyer map at 36" wide http://odtmaps.com/detail.asp?product_id=Mead-HOBO-special-14

Buckminster Fuller Raleigh Edition Dymaxion Map

This Raleigh Edition of the Dymaxion (TM) map, first designed in Raleigh, North Carolina, is a vivid color reproduction of the original rendition created by R. Buckminster Fuller in 1954 in his office there. We have reproduced the map exactly as it was first conceived and produced by its creator. Both the land masses and the grayscale shading in the oceans represent mean low annual temperatures. The visionary Fuller designed this map to help us recognize that 'we're all astronauts aboard a little spaceship called Earth.' Because it can be reconfigured into a variety of patterns, it also communicated the point that 'there are many ways to see the world.'  Prices from $20.

World Map for People in the USA - 11 x17 in.

We can customize a map like this for any city in the world! (only $199)
The traditional world map is poorly suited to understanding global relationships in our present era in which these relationships have become increasingly important to all peoples on earth. Traditional and current world maps are mostly centered on the equator, and project the round world as a rectangle or ellipse. This means the world is broken up along the edges, usually in the middle of an ocean (east/west) or at the poles (north/south), providing the map user with an inadequate image of global relationships. The equator-centered world maps all distort distance relationships. This makes it look as though the shortest routes between places invariably follow lines of latitude. The map user has no idea that direct routes often go over or near the poles or across a divided ocean.

Africa´s World 11 x 17 in.
This Africa-centered global perspective on the planet is an azimuthal equal area map. The map is centered on the Equator and 15 degrees East as a convenient geographical center point of the continent. The world is shown as spreading outwards in all directions from that point. It provides information about distance from this central point in Africa to every other location in the world. It also shows all the countries at the same scale and in proportion. It is a great map for residents of Africa, but not much help if you don’t live there. And because any map has to distort SOME aspect of the truth, the further you get from Africa, the worse the distortion of shapes. Sample Africa map, 11”x 17” - $11.00 each.
