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.

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.
NOW ON SALE: Paper folded $17.99
This Raleigh Dymaxion (TM) map is a desktop version at 1/4th of the size of the 22''x34'' full-size version we produced. It is perfect for a student desktop map, as it shows the sizes and shapes of the continents accurately. The paper format can be cut up and folded into the 20-sided polyhedron that Fuller started with. Or this size, when laminated, can make a snappy addition to your breakfast table as an exciting placemat. It's educational, as it has a lengthy explanation printed on the reverse side. The text on the map (being reduced in size) is hard to read, but the desktop version has the same vivid colors of the original.

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. A REVOLUTIONARY NEW MAP FOR PEOPLE IN THE USA
