A colleague just sent me this link. The article is dated 10 Dec 2009. Note: New Scientist may pop up a dialog asking you to register, but you can skip it (unless you've visited too many times in a month).

Interesting. Somehow I have the feeling that it won't really take off for mainstream cartography! It is not every day we see a new projection, though.

It looks pretty neat indeed, but I too wonder about the practical use.

A couple of these maps are part of the current exhibit, Infodecdata, in the Graphic Design Museum in Breda.

The museum has a little store attached to it, picked up some interesting books on design and freelancing there. It's worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood.

This is truly an interesting link....and something I wish I learned about earlier. Would have totally changed my thesis proposal. Thank you!
