Born 500 years ago today, 5 March 1512. Just when we thought the projection named for him was out of fashion, relegated to marine navigation, it came roaring back thanks to Google Maps. Today, counting all the Web Mercator online services, I'm sure it dwarfs the use of any other projection.
Happy birthday, Gerhard Mercator
