Description:

This quick loading Flash animation shows what happens when the surface of a globe is pulled off and placed on a flat surface. Note the gaps that are produced when the scene changes from a round, three dimensional surface to a flat, two dimensional surface. To see how these gaps are reconciled to produce a seamless map, see the Wiley animation on projections. Show this video as an introduction. The video can be paused and rewound to stress important points.
