How non-geomatics see maps

So that they are distracted a little, this week has been published in an article on the subject of projections, with the emphasis that would explain a teacher of sixth grade when talking about maps mundi.

geography 20 minutes is It pays to keep an eye on the comments, a pity - ironic - that are too many, but here I leave some:


the way of expressing itself of a journalist writing on technical subjects does not stop being curious.
to me that they explain to me that it is a datum

And my big toe is bigger than the sun!
I checked it today!

Moral (of a geodesic): If you see a map do not think about what it says, if not who has done it.

the world is more water than earth, not bad, because other planets do not have that advantage and because of that there is no life.

And half will not even know where Greenland is ... 20 minutes, you ask too much!

The truth is that Spain in geographical proportion is a mere **.

If only geographical ...

The Earth is three-dimensional and impossible to represent on a plane. Touch them lame ...!
It is so impossible to represent that it has been represented since man is man. What a foolish phrase!


I'm going to give you another story, besides the earth is hollow, after getting all the oil, I hope no one can think of doing an x-ray from the air because then we are going to scare.

What would newspapers do without Wikipedia?

You take Google Earth and you see more or less the proportions.

20 minutes, I'm going to give you another scoop to publish it on the front page: I think the Chinese have two new inventions: one is a needle that always points to the north, and the other is a black powder that deflagrates, and if it You put it in a little bag, tight, it bursts and it can break things.

The best map is the map of the clitoris that has made our most excellent minister of equality (note the tone of sarcasm).

Have they converted Topography into an engineering?

The Canary Islands are not as close to Spain and as far from Brazil as it seems. In fact, many years ago the flights took that route to cross the pond.

Although it is a geoid and such things, it can be represented in 2D safely in a reliable way, another thing is that nobody would understand how the map would be displayed, but come on, I doubt that making a representation in 3D with “accuracy” of measures cannot then take a plane with different cuts and put together: \

That is, my clitoris is not deformed, it is that I see it that way on my map-clitoris, because it is not flat ... how quiet I stay!

Of the few good things that I have found Buzz, via Jorge, (not the prize) :)
