Hobo-Dyer Projection: South-up, Pacific-centered, Equal-area Map


The Hobo-Dyer Equal Area Projection is a way of placing the three dimensional Earth onto a two dimensional map without significantly changing the relative areas of land and water. In addition to depicting its actual relative size, this map in particular puts the Global North – Europe and North America – at the bottom of the map and to the peripheral corners, seriously shifting typical perspective of most maps.
