THE MOST ACCURATE FLAT MAP OF THE EARTH was created by R. Buckminster Fuller, distinguished mathematician, inventor and 20th century visionary. http://www.bfi.org/map.htm The Dymaxion Map is the only flat map of the entire surface of the earth that reveals our planet as it really is an island in one ocean without any visible distortion of the relative shapes and sizes of the land areas, and without splitting any continents.
Instead of serving as "a precise means for seeing the world from the dynamic, cosmic and comprehensive viewpoint," the maps we use still cause humanity to "appear inherently disassociated, remote, self-interestedly preoccupied with the political concept of its got to be you or me; there is not enough for both."
