This video was created to give some examples of assumptions which go into cartography (making maps), and how we can possibly change some of the rules or assumptions to get an entirely different matrix in which to plot known distances on a chart. I’m certainly no cartographer, but by assuming the North Pole (for example) is a single point is an integral assumption which appears to find its way into all maps. I’m not saying this is the key to mapping the plane accurately, I’m just illustrating the point that we should question fundamental assumptions which, when modified even slightly will change the matrix of the grid, and therefore will change the entire layout of the map. Hopefully you’ll understand the point I’m making by the end of the short series.
