deformation map

the eternal struggle to understand how a world map is deformed:
this time I make move the pole point along the meridian 0º line.
it's interesting to notice how the shapes of continents we are used to are deformed as long as they are approaching the pole point.
this hypnotic animated image can make you think about how a world map is different than the spherical reality of the planet globe.
