new world map

Contiguous land

Accept the challenge and employ a new world map that includes 100% of life on earth. The anthropocentric Dymaxion map, our grand inspiration, can not do that as it splits the oceans, which cover 70% of earth.

Scientists estimate that 91 percent of ocean species have yet to be classified.

An estimated 50-80% of all life on earth is found under the ocean surface and the oceans contain 99% of the living space on the planet. Less than 10% of that space has been explored by humans. 85% of the area and 90% of the volume constitute the dark, cold environment we call the deep sea. The average depth of the ocean is 3,795m. The average height of the land is 840m.
