The Strebe Lenticular Equal-area projection was first introduced at the NACIS conference in 1995. It was created as a result of daan Strebe's Geocart software program. It shares the excellent qualities of being equal-area with the Peters and Hobo-Dyer maps, but has less distortion of shapes, especially at the high latitudes. If we can agree that maps don't have to completely fill up rectangular sheets of paper, then we allow for the possibility of an interesting world map image such as this one. The use of the curved shape makes for an aesthetically pleasing image that reminds us of many of the famous "compromise" projections used by the National Geographic Society  (NGS) over the last 80 years (the Van der Grinten, the Robinson, and most recently the Winkel-Tripel). We sometimes wonder why the equal area quality that ODTmaps finds so important has never caught on with the NGS. Well we're not going to wait for them to adopt it, so you can get a custom map here in full-color at a variety of sizes in many formats.
We also make this map available to you as a free B&W download outline map on our
FREE MAPS & MORE page. See the next tab for why we call it "Lenticular."
