Why such distorted shapes for Canada and Russia? You don't have to use projections designed to show the whole world when you're just showing one country.
+1
Level 59
Jan 6, 2015
"Designed to show the whole world", no it's designed to show 99% of the world, the area around the poles would be near infinite. By the way, we already had better projections in the 20th century (Robinson, Sinusoid etc). Why not use those?

@Kfroog. I agree with you, but I have a more anti-Mercator opinion than you.

Jetpunk doesn't use the Mercator Projection. If you look at the Countries of the World Quiz and then Google "Mercator Projection" you will see the difference.

Two minutes of silence for these people:

1. Mistook Turkey for Ukraine and missed it

2. Mistook Afghanistan for Germany and missed it

3. Mistook Turkey for Afghanistan (vice-versa applies) and missed both

The governments of all four involved countries have declared war on their neighbors to gain territory and therefore not look the same.
