The Scottish cartographer James Gall published a scientific paper that included an image of his Gall Orthographic Projection in 1885. This idea was revolutionary at the time because it’s an equal-area projection that shows countries in the proper size and proportion to each other. Many popular modern maps continue to show large distortions in country size.
- Many other maps like the popular Mercator projection distort the shapes of countries. Greenland and Africa should not be the same size! Africa is 14x larger than Greenland.
- The Mercator projection seen in most publications was developed for navigation, not understanding geography! Teach with a correct projection and understand the world in the right proportion.
- The Gall Orthographic Wall Map is printed with archival-quality inks on 36lb bright-white paper and laminated versions are laminated with a satin-finish 1.7mil lamination on each side.
- Expertly designed with up-to-date geographic data and labels in a color palette that’s easy on the eyes.
Our map was plotted using Gall’s math then expertly designed to create the most legible version of this projection available. The labeling is detailed and clear while the design elements are classic and clean. The color palette is pleasing to the eye and country borders are easily identifiable. The map includes a relief layer that displays changes in topography and even ocean floor depths.
