Comments30/11/2016 #1 Gerald HechtIt makes you wonder about all of the flags and banners and family crests and monogrammed billfolds with yet still more inked Woodrow Wilson images...futility...it's all futility; In throwing this stupid thing out...there's a receptacle just ahead!

On any text book map - obviously designed by western society - India is five times smaller than Greenland, when truth is that India is the 7th largest country in the world vs Greenland, which is the 13th.

"Squished" is the perspective we get from the comparison we do with the maps we know, but if we would have seen the actual proportions from the beginning we would probably just see it and think, "yeah, that's the map we know".25/05/2016 #3 Steven DaviesIt was done this way simply because of the way the world is shaped, not because of some 'western' bias. The trouble with paper maps is that the world is round and paper isn't. When making things fit, from a globe to a 2D representation, images are skewed and squashed. The image in this post, for instance, suffers the same fate but in reverse. You wouldn't be able to overlay that image onto a globe and still retain its accuracy, the same is true from globe to paper.
