Browsing the web for more fun cartography stuff, I found this remarkable website on map projections by a programmer called Carlos Furuti, who has been maintaining it as a hobby since the 1990s (!). He wrote his own software for drawing maps, which can do super-cool things including generate polyhedral projections which can be printed out and folded into pseudoglobes. He was kind enough to reply to my fan mail and told me that my lantern globes are actually an instance of polyconic projections (also described on his site). There’s even tips on how to do the cutting and pasting. This takes things to a whole new level….
