I love data. I love lakes.  What's not to love about Data Lakes? A post for any marketer who wishes their data just kind of blended together and spat out actionable insights.

+Joseph Kalinowski explores the implications of crowdsourcing design projects.

Remarkably even-handed, given the guy is a professional designer of 16+ years.

How have we just accepted a hugely distorted world map for so long?
I suspect you don't recognize the attached view of the world, even if it is massively more accurate. It's name is the Authagraph Projection

The world map you are used to seeing, with the Americas on the left and Japan on the right is the Mercator map. It has many problems as Max Galka shares in his post: https://goo.gl/DBGVQ2

It distorts sizes, ex. it depicts Greenland as almost as big as Africa when Greenland is significantly smaller. It has a cultural bias. It is infinitely tall. It is terrible for navigation.

There are a number of alternatives. Gall-Peters, Miller, Winkel-Tripel, and Authagraph.

The last one is the most accurate. Invented in Japan, it avoids all the problem for the Mercator and can be folded to form a 3d globe!

We think of numbers all day in context of data viz. It was fun to read Max's post as a different data viz problem. https://goo.gl/DBGVQ2
