Little did I know that posting an item about maps would solicit more feedback than just about anything else I’ve posted in the last year or so. The same reader who urged me to look further into the Peters Projection earlier also sent along a pointer to an article that discusses the controversy over that map and the political agenda behind it in exhaustive detail. Another reader sent along a pointer to the Fuller Projection — a map that offers extremely little distortion because it doesn’t bother trying to project the Earth onto a rectangle.
