Map Study

Map projection has always fascinated me. The process of flattening a 3D sphere onto a 2D space automatically brings imprecisions, and all projections are inaccurate in some ways.

We might be used to the mercator projection, but there is an infinits of other possibilities. In this study, I dipped my toes into this subject and explored custom projection, as well as other seldom used projections.
