Spilhaus Shoreline Map XI

This map by Athelstan Spilhaus is a stereographic projection centred at 45°S, 95°W.

The antipode of its centre, 45°N, 85°E, is a point in Asia which is approximately the furthest from any ocean.

The stereographic projection places this point at infinity. Thus we can conveniently use Asia’s shoreline as the boundary for the whole map.
