Peters Equal Area Projection World Map


The Peter's Map is a map projection that chooses to emphasize proper size proportion, and makes up for it in compromising the accuracy in country shapes - AKA an equal area map.  

It is impossible to 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.  

Available as a wall map (24" x 36") and as a folded option (52" x 35").
