Dots on a sphere.

I have always wanted to have a large, printed map of the earth, with little flags at all locations I've traveled to, lived in, and enjoyed. I also wanted it to be a map with the North and South Pole switched, just to see if and how that impacts the world view. I couldn't really find a good printed version of the flipped-poles map, so I drew a digital version instead. You can drag it around and point the poles into any direction.

Places I've visited, been born in, lived in, worked in, enjoyed, and traveled through.

On this map, the whole earth is projected onto a disc using the Lambert azimuthal equal-area projection. Inspired by work of Mike Bostock and John Caplewski.
