How does one portray the spherical shape of the Earth on a nonspherical surface?   

Accuracy cannot be achieved simultaneously in area, shape and distance.  Distortion is inevitable but is handled in an infinite number of map projections which are systematic transformations of latitudes and longitudes of locations on the Earth’s sphere into locations on a flat plane.  Locations in three-dimensional space are made to correspond to a two-dimensional representation.  Although the subject is inherently mathematical and very complex in some instances, it also is highly visual and human reaction ranges from near disbelief to unquestioned acceptance as truth, from confusion to a clear understanding of the information.  Map projections have been devised for propaganda purposes, as evidence in court, for use in detailed planning, and to attract attention.

Our World Map Projections are a comprehensive selection of whole-world Political Maps (and one interrupted world map), Europe, Asia and America centric maps from which to make an appropriate choice for Technical, Graphic or Decorative uses.
