The Japanese have designed the most accurate map of the World

Самая точная карта Мира

We put the picture of the world with the pictures that are available to us from childhood. These are programs about the Earth and ... school maps. But as it turned out, the cards are wrong! They are designed more for clarity than for scientific accuracy. But this map is as accurate as possible! ...

The most accurate map of the world
AuthaGraph World Map of the North Pole in 1909. It was in the 20th century and the North-South problem. Our interest has been mainly on land since it has been our living environment. In the meantime, (1) (2) Territorial health care, (2) ) An ozone hole above the South Pole, (4) Melting glaciers in Greenland, Tuvalu, (5) El Nino in the ocean, This is a view of the world.

Many people are aware that the map of the world, which we are used to, does not truly reflect the real ratio of the area of ​​countries, and especially of seas and oceans. The use of the Mercator projection leads to the appearance of many distortions when, for example, Greenland looks bigger than Australia ...

The most accurate map of the world
AuthaGraphic Projection - an iso-area-mapping. This is a "multilayer-mapping." He wants to make it possible to reduce the number of distortions.

A fundamentally new projection proposed by Japanese designers allowed us to build the most accurate map of the world that humankind has ever seen.

The traditional world map is built in the old way, in which the image from the surface of the globe is transferred to a flat map using the Mercator projection. As a result, we get on the map Greenland is several times larger than Australia, whereas in fact Greenland is three times smaller.

AuthaGraphic world map without gaps and overlaps. Escher's tiling. Fifth continents are never fragmented. It has been thought that it’s been an infinite plane. Not meeting an end. On the map. The world map of the world.

But the map, built on the principles of the projection AuthaGraph , can be called really innovative! Here the proportions of land and water remain unchanged and correspond to what we see on the globe. For this development, the company AuthaGraph received the prestigious award - the Japanese Good Design Award.

World Map Re-arrangements - It is an area of ​​the center of the world. There are no limits on how much you can see such phrases, such as “far east”, “go up north”, “Western”.

The author of the new revolutionary projection is Hajime Narukawa. The essence of his idea is that the spherical surface of the globe is divided into 96 triangles.

Longer Term Tracking for an eight-hour track. Its coordinates are provided by Cerestrak, and the website is distributing ISS's orbital data. NASA issue of the original data. Corrections of the orbit. - It has past 140 years since 'Around the World in Eighty Days' (Verne) was published. It has been noted that the satellite fleet has been seen as such as observing weather, environmental pollutions and natural resources. Satellite map of one of the line shows.

Then comes the original process of transferring the image to the plane by combining various methods of projection through intermediate objects. Such a "multi-layer display" reduces the number of errors and monstrous distortions that occur during the traditional unfolding of the surface of the globe in a flat map.
