Peters projection

See on Scoop.itHOMEHISTORY

 

“The Peters projection (1973), also called the Gall-Peters projection, is an equal-area projection, a way to show the round Earth as a rectangle while keeping all the areas that are equal on Earth equal on the map. It comes at the cost of making some continents and countries appear narrower than they are.”
