Title: Flat Earth alternative to a globe
Post by: goodwoodglobes on February 09, 2019, 06:15:33 PM
I'd like to carve a Flat Earth map into wood, showing the continents and the mountains rising in 3D from a flat disk, following the standard monopole Flat Earth map. There have been Flat Earth maps for a long time, but this would be a Flat Earth alternative to a globe.

Add a comment if you're interested, and I'll create a computer mock-up of how it would look. It'd be a great thing to have to show others the Flat Earth view of the world!

I'm more partial to this version as it distorts the southern hemiplane continents less:

These are not FE maps, there are no resources to produce them, so we are told.

They are projections of the globe earth.
