Size does matter: Authagraph World Map turns the Earth into a rectangle using tetrahedrons

Most common world maps are highly size distorted, with anything toward the poles tending to look much bigger than it really is. Which, in some ways, makes this weird-looking projection a lot more accurate. How it’s made is a fascinating process – now, what is it actually useful for?

Rejigged AuthaGraph World Map representing the true relative sizes of continents and seas. AuthaGraph World Map is made by equally dividing a spherical surface into 96 triangles, transferring it to a tetrahedron while maintaining areas proportions and unfolding it to be a rectangle. The world map can be tiled in any direction without visible seams. From this map-tiling, a new world map with triangular, rectangular or parallelogram’s outline can be framed out with various regions at its center.

This World Map Is Weird — But Also the Most Accurate

Traditional 2-D maps of Earth are highly distorted, but this award-winning design makes a world of difference.
