What other cartographers and geographers have said...

"Thank you for sending these images. The analysis is particularly impressive and well done." Waldo

10/10/17 Gene Keyes...
"Unlike most world maps, it includes a laudable five degree graticule;
... Steve Waterman has produced a splendid octahedral map;
professionally done in a size and color that would make [B.J.S.] Cahill proud."

Try visually comparing different maps with an actual globe and see for yourself.



These maps should really be in every classroom.
They 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: better than all other World maps.
       No other maps have been able to handle the management of those characteristics collectively as well, as the Waterman World map. To still be 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.
