Jan Barend Elwe: Planisphere Representant Toute L'Etendue Du Monde Dans L'Ordre Qu'on A Suivi Dans Ce Livre / Maps of the World

"Giovanni Domenico Cassini's monumental 24 foot diameter hand-drawn map of the world was originally drawn by Cassini on the floor of the Paris Observatory between 1679 and circa 1690. Cassini's work was the final chapter of the centuries old quest to map the world based upon Astronomical Observations, dating back to the ancient geographers of Greece and perhaps before.

The Cassini planisphere is assuredly one of the greatest cartographic landmarks connected with the furtherance of accurate map-making, and it is one of the first successful attempts to plot the shape of the earth from exact astronomical observations--and numerous observations, judging from the map. Thus the ultimate desire of the ancient classical geographers for astonomical accuracy for place locations was at last achieved, at least in part, through Cassini's efforts
...

Cassini's map was constructed based upon observations of the eclipses of Jupiter and other celestial data compiled in 43 locations around the world
...

This is the first map constructed using scientific data... coordinates of latitude and longitude for points throughout the world were collected by the Académie Royale des Sciences for over thirty years...
with the North Pole at the center."

Lol, north and south seas. Would be more logical if they were stacked north / south, but they seem to just be two whole bodies of water here. Not saying that makes it bogus, but doesn't seem very useful of naming.

I have looked at a bunch of maps from books and online sources. One peaked my interest the most and I looked into it a lot more than the others.

I looked into the distances and paths for the flights. The distances and paths match up on google earth which is odd to say the least. It is also different from the one the poster boys use which has Australia more towards the east. A lot of navigation maps have to be accurate so I thought I would look into this map more. I am not saying this is the correct map, what I am saying is the data they put on it is very accurate as to what they claim the distances are on a globe. No greater circles either....What I find the most curious about such a detailed map, is why so much detail. You can zoom in to read the fine print of all the little islands. If they claim it is just a visual aid, why go into that amount of detail? I am looking into getting a paper copy to see if the trigonometry for the distances is right. Only with a scale map can I get the proper scale to measure it out. But as far as the distances they claim, it is what google earth claims too....The map even shows the scale at which the longitudes spread out....Why would that matter if it wasn't accurate? Now every map ever made is purposely distorted. We all know this, and it is acknowledged as being the fault of a globe being laid flat. So the shape and size of the continents might not be right, but the distances and general directions of the flights on this map seem dead on. I think we need to get some type of map started to at least have a rough model. Some of the cities and their locations can be verified using longitudes. It is admitted by geography that the longitudes are correct. They just say the latitudes are not accurate. If they start to get out of whack, we know the map isn't right. Using flight times is really a bad method. Airplanes ride on jet streams that can make the flight way faster or slower. This is the method most use to claim a map as false. When in fact they are using the improper in flight speed to determine this fact. Saying a plane flies at 540mph, when it can reach almost 900 on a Jetstream, is not logical or empirical. If they had a video of the entire flight showing its speed, then it might hold a little more weight. I just think they spend so much time pointing at one map and saying it is wrong and keep looking at this one.....that maybe we need to look at the ones they are not showing.

The Globe Continents are distorted because they first convert the Gleason type Flat Earth Map, to the Mercator Projection, to Globe.

Yes, it certainly does have "bulge" to it, I noticed as well - probably not the best example.

Yes both maps have been made using Photoshop's Distort -> Polar Coordinates filter.
It's the only way to make a Gleason Flat Earth Map, unless you draw by hand.
They are both very accurate and overlay over the Gleason map.

The only bulge here is in my pants! Actually you are correct,
the text of each Country had to be distorted.

I'm not interested in a distorted flat Earth Maps that looks like someone is promoting Dome or Curvature.
