    By way of some background information on this Peter’s World Map:

    Arno Peter, a cartographer and historian, first introduced this map in Germany in 1974. While the map has generated much debate, it nevertheless shows all areas of the world according to their actual sizes. As such, developing countries, which have traditionally been shown on maps to be smaller than their industrialized counterparts, are represented in their true proportions. Regardless of your own views, at its essence, this map shows us that there are many ways to see the world.
