David Byrne has installed a giant inflatable globe underneath the High Line Park in NYC. Perhaps some cartotalker was involved in its production?

NY Magazine article with photo: http://nymag.com/art...gh-line-2011-9/

Press reslease with an earlier photo, this looks like it was a prototype of the globe: http://thepacegaller...0Byrne_2011.pdf

From the photo posted, it doesn't look like the cartography is too detailed.

Is that a flat polar quartic projection?
