The San Francisco Antarctic Survey [Bean Brew No.6]

The San Francisco Antarctic Survey [Bean Brew No.6]

This map depicts an expedition from San Francisco to Antarctica in search of reasonably-priced urban living space. Way down south in Antarctica, the expedition team is biding its time with analog hobbies and excellent beer as they wait for the completion of the MUNI subway extension line in 2038.

The world is round, which doesn't always translate into a two-dimensional map. I experimented with an alternative mapping projection that depicts Antarctica and the far southern reaches of the globe look quite accurately, but leaves North America looking just a bit strange. Greenland says, “Welcome to the club.”
