The Waterman 5
[ as a sphere cluster, as a polyhedron, projection algorithm ]


Try visually comparing different map projections with an actual globe and see for yourself...is Antartica the proper shape or does that require a special insert to accomplish this ? One good look at the relative sizes of Africa to Europe should be an eye-opener as to the "truth" presented, from various projection methodologies.


These maps should really be in every classroom.
The Waterman projection show the equator clearly, as well as continental shapes,
distances ( within 10 % ), areas ( within 10 % )
angular distortions ( within 20 degrees ), and relative postions,
as a compromise: statistically better than all other World maps.
       No other projection systems have been able to handle the management of those characteristics collectively as well - although admittedly, since this is a compromise, any specific aspect could be charted...and would be better, regarding that sole aspect. Teaching our youth with a Mercator or Robinson or the Winkel Tripel projection in the 21st century is a continuing academic problem that many, perhaps most, are not even aware exists.
