Description

AuthaGraph World Map

The AuthaGraph World Map is an award-winning projection which accurately depicts the relative size and shape of earth’s landmasses.  This map is based on a modern design created by Japanese architect Hajime Narukawa.  Although not a true equal-area map, it represents the relative sizes and shapes of countries and continents as accurately as possible.

A sequence of images below the main map explains how the projection is created.  This involves dividing a spherical surface into 96 equal triangles,  projecting these triangles onto a tetrahedron, and then unfolding the tetrahedron to form a rectangle.

The map is printed in full colour and silver and comes rolled in a tube for easy shipping.
