To answer this question, Buckminster Fuller invented the Dymaxion (tm) globe and map.

The Dymaxion Globe has many advantages:
Unfolded, it has very little distortion and no breaks in the continental contours.

The Dymaxion map shows that all the continents are connected, or separated by relatively short distances.

This "one-world island in a one-world ocean" helps us visualize global resources, population and distribution patterns which characterize the complex trends and critical needs of today's world.
