The Dymaxion World Map

The Dymaxion World Map is the only flat map of the entire surface of Earth that shows the geographic interdependence of our planet—a one-world island in a one-world ocean—with no visible distortion in the size and shapes of the land masses, and without dividing any continents. The map projection was invented by the late designer and futurist R. Buckminster Fuller.

A synthesis of Art + Science, this new edition of the map combines seven global data sets to reveal a stunning portrait of our home planet. Each of the following map layers adds texture and color: Watersheds, Mountains, Sea Floor Bottom, Human Settlements, Sea Ice, Glaciers, and Ice Flows.

The 36” x 19” map poster was printed using a six-color lithographic process to provide unmatched vibrancy and detail. This is truly a work of art.
