This is the most exciting and beautiful map we've seen in quite a while. It is a 14-sided polyhedral projection addressing both distortion and partitioning of land masses. The butterfly layout combines legibility and low distortion. This almost-equal-area version wall map (1996) is available now at a special price. A 2012 Waterman Pacific version and Waterman 2012 Atlantic version are now available directly from Steve Waterman. All Waterman maps are paper maps.

Waterman Butterfly V-1 Map  

Steve Waterman, a self-taught theoretical nuclear physicist, created a 14-sided polyhedral map in 1996 based on the mathematics of sphere-packing. The 2012 versions of this map are being distributed by Waterman, who is based in Montreal. ODT has a limited number of the 1996 version in stock. The 1996 version is an almost-equal area map. Waterman postcards and magnets are also available from ODT.

ODT does not supply the map in a laminated format, but several map resellers have stock which they will laminate the 1996 version for you (see OMNI map). Much less expensive than laminating it yourself at a local copy center, where the lamination alone can cost $70 per map.

We've had many requests to ship the rolled map internationally, but the length of the box means the shipping cost is $30-$50 (depending on the destination).
To enable international customers to get this map, we've gently folded a few copies (1996 version) and can ship them in a padded envelope. However, the folded maps are fragile and may be damaged in transit.  SKYPE us at ODTinc if you have questions about international shipping.  $42.79 each
