World Mercator Projection with True Size Country Added
#Waps #World

@jd It's really cool but i'd say that's the real size but not the real shape... mercator deforms the shape more in the places nearer to the poles, so the real shapes are reduced in a different way... i guess...


It *says* "True Size", not true shape, doesn't it?

@erAck @jd It does, but it's cool to know the shape would be other, isn't it?
