So I'm sure you're all familiar with the UN projection of the Earth that puts the Arctic at the center and shows all the land, but let me present to you the inverse of that, the Spilhaus projection, which centers the map on Antarctica and shows the world's ocean as the single, continuous mass of water that it is.

this is one of those maps where you either love it or hate it at first glance

@starwall i would watch this deform back into a sphere for hours


My takeaway is that when you unroll the oceans they look like a rad horse pulling a carriage.

@starwall Beautiful maps. We all live in a village around the same lake, really.

@starwall I love it and your descriptions are great, I really appreciate them because I couldn't have made any sense of it without it. I wouldn't have known I love it! So thanks.

@starwall I love it. I’d love to visit this place sometime

@starwall Nah I have. I’m just joking cause like when I first looked at this map it looked so foreign that I had difficulty recognizing it as earth

@starwall I used to live in Florida. We had a lot of ocean. Too much if you ask me. That’s why global warming is bad, cause Florida doesn’t need any more ocean

@starwall @SuperGideon Is that Lake Ontario? I always get them confused. Is Niagara Falls on there?

this is fucked up. earth is round. are you one of those conspiracy theorists, starwall
