- can distances be accurately measured? are directions preserved? are shapes preserved? are area ratios preserved?
the system of projections that is conceived by a human shapes their environment based on what they think is accurate at the ‹time› being. there are numerous different map projections and in each projection there are countless of modifications in order to reach the accurate formation of the earth's surface; however,in each map the units˚ change in value, which ends up distorting and stretching certain regions. the question is, how differently a person might get effected by perceiving a particular map projection in a particular second, that contains different unit˚ fallibilities change the way they perceive and analyse their world, and how differently they will end up getting effected by in the future»
