The True Size of Africa

Include Subhead Presentation
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
This display consists of a laminated 2002 Hobo-Dyer placemat map (11'' x 17'') along with 6 individual laminated Mercator comparison panels. The Hobo-Dyer map has two sturdy grommets at the top for hanging. At the bottom left is a 3rd grommet with a key ring. The ring holds the 6 comparison panels (taken from the bottom of the early version of the Peters wall map). These were originally used by our retailers for point-of-purchase educational displays. They are now available to classroom teachers. They are classic items and will never be published again. Limited quantities!
