AuthaGraph World Map Corrects Perceptions

No map is perfect but those behind AuthaGraph have offered an alternative that addresses size perception. By laying the spherical world out on 96 triangles, which are then transferred to a triangular pyramid, they have been able to depict continents (and countries) in more accurate sizes with regard to one another. When unfolded, this pyramid can either lay flat in rectangular form or be folded into a globe, with both being accurate. It’s not the best navigational tool, but that’s not the point—this is an educational implement.
