New Folds

A description in New Scientist of a new way of mapping the spherical earth into flat projections. I have seen a number of examples of similar methods. They are clever, though I am not sure that such views, though more accurate, will see general use. I recall hearing a comment, 'Why are there cracks in the map'? Is that better than getting the visual impression that Greenland is much bigger than it really is?
