Do we really need another google maps integration? Old article but interesting view. Any other suggestions?

My wall map is the Michelin one I mentioned.

I contacted Mr. Waterman himself, and it turns out that his map does have countries and major cities.. but the resolution of the map images on his site made it impossible to tell that. He has since uploaded a close-up version (which is ok - but not great compared to the Michelin one); and he also said that he hopes to have a satellite version in a couple weeks.

Here's the thing though.. although the accuracy of distances and areas of the Waterman projection is within 10%, I don't want to look at 1/2 the world on a slant, and the other 1/2 horizontally. How about this compromise: http://imm.io/bWmz -- it's still pretty bad.

Re: your project. Will the map always be fully zoomed out to "world" view? Anyway, it's probably better to go with easier/quicker to implement to start. So yeah, just use Google Maps. Do they offer other projections?
