World Maps



World maps are maps that represent most or all of the surface of the Planet Earth. They must deal with the projection and distortion problem because the Earth's three-dimensional surface is displayed in two dimensions.

On a world map, distortions reach extremes due to the cartographic projection adopted. Many techniques have been developed to present world maps that address diverse technical and aesthetic goals.
