New World Map Unveiled In Orlando, FL and Oslo, Norway

For immediate release:

Contact Kate Larson - 800-736-1293, (Email: odtstore@odt.org)

An alternative view of the world will arrive simultaneously in Orlando and Oslo, Norway during the week of December 9, 2002 -- the new Hobo-Dyer Projection World Map. On December 10, 2002, when President Jimmy Carter receives the Nobel Peace Prize, he will use ODT's new Hobo-Dyer map in Carter Center media materials. This dramatic new map will indicate the 65 countries in the world where the Carter Center has worked since 1982.

The Hobo-Dyer Map is a new world view that is a collaboration among leading cartographers, radical designers, graphic artists, and organization development consultants. Published by ODT, Inc. of Amherst, MA the new Hobo-Dyer map is on-line at: Hobo-Dyer Projection Maps

Most maps pursue some agenda. The new Hobo-Dyer was developed to inform the public that every map HAS a hidden agenda. The Hobo-Dyer is an Equal-Area map, like the Peters map that was featured on the hit TV show, West Wing. On West Wing, a fictional group, Cartographers for Social Equality, “freaked out” President Bartlet’s press secretary, C.J. Craig, by flipping the world upside-down and putting south on top.

The Hobo-Dyer map released this fall does one better! Not only is south on top, but the map is centered on the Pacific Ocean. The Hobo-Dyer map is printed on both sides: It is south-up with Australia in the center on one side, with the more traditional north-up (and Africa-centered) on the other. Both images are exactly the same, but side-by-side you get a dramatic view of the power of perspective See Hobo-Dyer Projection Maps.
 

 

 

 

While the purpose of most maps is to pursue some sort of an agenda, the purpose of the new Hobo-Dyer is to inform the public that every map HAS a hidden agenda.
