This is great fun! A little tricky at first though:)

Kristen McDaniel's curator insight, February 11, 2013 12:03 PM

Great site to show projection and changes in perception on maps.  

John Nieuwendyk's curator insight, December 17, 2014 5:45 PM

This mercator puzzle was especially interesting. It illustrated how various countries look on a mercator map compared to other maps.

Apple Apologizes for Its Maps Problem

Apple Apologizes for Its Maps Problem | riavaluoS | ACCI SRL | Scoop.it
"We are extremely sorry," Apple CEO Tim Cook says in an open letter.

 

Producing a poor map can have disastrous consequences, especially if that map is widely disseminated.  Given that people rely on maps to be accurate and base decisions on spatial information, it is the mapmaker's responsibility to not go live with a map (or mapping platform) until it does meet the standards of expectation.

This image is trippy. I agree with the caption, it is only the mapmaker's responsability to not go live with a map until it meets standards. People need to know where they're going,

While its terrifying that Apple would push a product that appears to be significantly flawed, it is nice to see them own their mistake and offer some solutions.

I am glad that Apple has moved away from relying on google maps. I have not had a problem with Apple Maps domestically.
