PETERS PROJECTION PHYSICAL WORLD MAP - EQUAL AREA PROJECTION


The Peter's Map is a map projection that chooses to emphasize proper size proportion, and thus forfeits accuracy in country shapes.  You just can't project a spherical world onto a flat sheet of paper without some kind of distortion.  A common misconception, corrected by a Peter's Equal Area Projection World Map, is that Greenland is so very, very large. 

By viewing it on a globe or equal-area projection map, you can see that it is not as huge as commonly thought.  A panel on the bottom of the equal area projection map shows how size distortions occur.  Plus it is pacific centered and has physical information!  Size (32.5"x21").
