Representing our globe on a flat surface is the insoluble challenge of the worlds to which the Winkel-Tripel projection has given a new answer. Designed in 1921 by Oswald Winkel, it minimizes surface, direction and distance alterations. It is a kind of average between the equidistant cylindrical projection and the Aïtoff projection. Proof that it is a very good compromise, the Winkel-Tripel projection has been used since 1998 by the National Geographic Society for its maps.
To design this World Map, we used a very high-resolution background that presents continental and oceanic landforms with great precision. Only the internal borders are present, leaving the coasts untouched, to appear as they really are. Our planet thus appears as close as possible to its natural beauty and truth.
