The Many Shapes of Earth

PRESENTED ON MAR 13, 2017
IN BIRMINGHAM @ VOL 17

Alexandre Coates talks about how we think about the Earth, mainly about what shape it is, from a flat earth (and flat-earth societies) to a sphere. The surface of a sphere simply cannot be rolled out on a 2D surface, so maps must always choose something to keep, and something to get rid of. So what does map-earth look like?
