AuthaGraph World Maps

Authagraph Countries Map

The AuthaGraph projection was invented in 1999 by Japanese architect Hajime Narukawa, and is one of the most innovative approaches to mapping today. The projection largely preserves the relative area of landmasses and oceans, limits the distortion of their shapes, and avoids cutting continents in half. And unlike it’s irregularly-shaped predecessor, the Dymaxian map, the AuthaGraph can fit neatly into a rectangle.

Perhaps most interestingly, the AuthaGraph projection reflects the spherical nature of Earth in that there are no dead ends. Below you can see the AuthaGraph expanded to show an infinite perspective of the world.

AuthaGraph maps can be reconfigured to make any point on the globe the center of the map. Here is an AuthaGraph map centered on Southern Africa.

And here we see the world from South America, a region that rarely enjoys the privilege of being mapped at the center.

Here’s another view of the world, centered on Europe.

This is how the world looks from the North Pole with the AuthaGraph.
