Fascinating. I wish I understood it better........... anyhow, there's mention of a book that I might find useful. I've been thinking recently of getting one of those big inflated plastic balls used in gyms (various sizes, but at least 18-24in. diam.). If you recall the hemisphere maps on my website ( -- which are "accurate enough", the originals are approx. 9" diam.-- how would I enlarge the various continents etc. to be able to trace on the ball, or make paper cut-outs that could be pasted on??? Very jury-rigged, I realize, but might be fun.
