This cannot be done without some distortion. Every projection has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. The mapmaker must select the one best suited to the needs, reducing distortion of the most important features.

Every flat map misrepresents the surface of the Earth in some way. || ↑ Top || The Globe Mercator

David Rumsey Historical Map Collection | The Collection Le blog de profhistgéo MapMaker Interactive Welcome to the MapMaker Interactive This tutorial explains how to explore National Geographic Education's interactive GIS mapping tool and tools for customizing outline maps for print. Use the zoom bar to go from a world view to a local view (or in cartographic terms, from a large scale to a small scale). If you zoom out to a world view, you will see that the map is in a Mercator projection. Use the location menus at the top to zoom from a world view to a continent, country, or other region. Identify your geographic position on the map using the latitude and longitude display at the bottom left. Switch between different styles of base maps including a custom layer from National Geographic, satellite, terrain, and topographic views. Using the 1-Page base map, click on a continent, country, or state to load the corresponding MapMaker 1-Page map. You can customize and download your 1-Page map, or go back to the interactive map to explore more.
