The Peters Map

The Peters Map is the more accurate map than the Mercator map we are used
to. the latter is a projection of a sphere onto a flat surface, with additional errors
geared to the world view of its creator.

Greenland is less huge in this one than Mercator though the sprawl at the top
makes me suspect it and other places are still somewhat warped.
