"In this complex and interdependent world in which the nations now live, the peoples of the world deserve the most accurate possible portrayal of their world. The Peters Map is the map for our day."
By providing an Equal Area, all countries, continents, and oceans are shown according to their size, thus accurate comparisons become possible. Equal Axis: all North-South lines run vertical on this map. Thus, geographic points can be seen in their precise directional relationship. Equal Positions: all East-West lines run parallel. Thus the relationship of any point on the map to its distance from the equator or to the angle of the sun can be readily determined. Fairness to All Peoples: By setting forth all countries in their true size and location, this map allows each one its actual position in the world.
