EL MAPA DE PETERS

Viviendo y aprendiendo, como dijo el otro.
Hoy me entero de lo que es el "mapa de Peters". Lo contaré someramente, puede que mucha gente ya lo conozca. Lo que sigue lo he copiado de alguna página por ahí. así que lo entrecomillo.

" El Mapa del Mundo de Peters es una proyección de la Tierra (redonda) sobre el plano. Fue presentado por el historiador y cartografo Dr. Arno Peters en Alemania en 1974. Hasta la aparición de este mapa, el mapa del mundo aceptado era la proyección debida al cartógrafo Gerardus Mercator, introducida en 1569.
La proyección de Mercator crea distorsiones crecientes en tamaño según nos alejamos del Ecuador. A medida que nos acecamos a los polos, esta distorsíon se hace más severa. Los cartógrafos se refieren a la incapacidad de comparar tamaños sobre una proyección como "el problema de Groenlandia".
Groenlandia parece ser del mismo tamaño que África, pero la superficie de África es catorce veces mayor. Como el mapa de Mercator deforma tanto el tamaño en los polos, es común cortar la Antártida en el mapa. Esta práctica hace que el hemisferio norte aparezca mucho más grande de lo que realmente es. La técnica de recorte termina en un mapa que muestra el ecuador aproximadamente al 60% de la parte alta del mapa, disminuyendo el tamaño y la importancia de los países en vía de desarrollo."

Os recomiendo que hagáis una búsqueda en Google con los términos "mapa de Peters" para que veáis todo lo que se cuece. En www.jimena.com se explica todo de manera muy sencilla y gráfica. A Peters, como es de esperar, se le tacha de chiflado en los círculos de los cartógrafos (la inmensa mayoría) que defienden el mapa de Mercator, y le acusan de crear polémica e incomodidad...

Así que hasta en eso nos tiene engañados, hasta en la fisonomía de nuestro planeta, gracias a algún acuerdo tácito de los entes que gobiernan el cotarro.
Me quedo con la frase de "disminuyendo el tamaño y la importancia de los países en vía de desarrollo". Sólo pueden tener importancia para aquellos que los expolían, claro. A los demás no nos tienen que preocupar demasiado. Si acaso para ir de vacaciones a hacer turismo sexual.

bienvenid@ :O) y feliz singladura
No conocía la historia del mapa de Peters: uséase, que la cartografía tampoco es inocente, proyectamos nuestra visión del mundo en el mapa... todo mapa es un mapa moral... es una buena historia ;O)

Bonito el tema, arbiera, bonito porque en efecto el Mercator infló los países 'buenos' y exprimió los 'malos', o sea los que no eran bien vistos por el norte. Más o menos como en la vida real, ¿no?.

P.D.: muchas gracias por enlazarme, no merezco tanto... ;)

Vamos, que los de siempre han pisoteado a los de abajo hasta en la cartografía.
Supongo que si no hacen nada para paliar los efectos que, todavía hoy, sigue causando la pobreza, lo del mapa es una menudencia.
Bien está saberlo, de todos modos.

Arbiera, me gustan tus blogs y éste en particular me ha impactado, reconozco humildemente mi incultura y el total desconocimiento sobre el mapa de Peter.
Pero estoy de acuerdo con todos, haciendo los países más pequeños ( los del sur) hacen 'sus' problemas insignificantes...

Nada y se sigue sin firmar Kyoto....

Si al mundo parece no importarle, ser la especie auto-destructiva por antonomasia . ¿Qué le va a importar como pinten en un mapa a África?. Pos nada, yo abogó por pintarlos más grandes sin autorización de cartógrafos del palo' mercator'... ¿ quién nos lo puede impedir? pues eso, a pintar tó el sur más grande!!

Yo las veces que he estado en África ( por temas sociales) me parecía grandísima, pero claro yo soy de Andorra y comparado con esto, es más grande hasta el barrio de Chamartín ( por decir algo y con todos mis respetos a este barrio..).. Pero que sepan, que así a ojo de buen cubero, grande parece ¡y mucho!

Bueno, me apetecía la nota de humor, Arbiera, ya me la disculpas ¿eh?
