For those of us who were reared with the standard classroom globe, the AuthaGraph map represents a whole new world. Designed by architect and artist Hajime Narukawa, this new visualization corrects the distortions inherent in the cylindrical Mercator map that has been in use for centuries. (Notice how Greenland no longer appears three times its real size?) Similar to Buckminster Fuller’s Dymaxion map, Narukawa’s version is a little disorienting, but much more accurate. This paper globe can be constructed into a standard sphere or a range of complex geometries.

The AuthaGraph map is made by dividing a spherical surface into 96 equal triangles, transferring it to a tetrahedron while maintaining its areas in proportion and unfolding it into a rectangle.
