An introduction to cartography emphasizing map projections: their properties, applications and basic mathematics.
The same text is included here in two versions using differently colored maps. Please choose (a small sample is shown in normal and larger sizes):
|Plain images, smaller and faster to load. Recommended for most users.|
|Dithered images, usually larger and coarser. May look better in color-constrained systems. This feature is deprecated and will be progressively removed, as I believe very few people still use 8-bpp displays.|
