Pitch on Pole

World maps are used emblematically to promote a special static ‘world-view’: they suggest a stable world order with fixed relations, an ‘up’ and ‘down’, relations in terms of size and of course - a center. But for a round planet ‘top’, ‘bottom’ or ‘center’ doesn´t make sence, nor is the world in stable order. We are used to the sight of our world maps - but especially because of that we should be aware of the distorted views they offer.

Pitch on Pole is an interactive world map which fluently generates alternative views of the world. Every single image will be as correct or incorrect as our known world maps, since Pitch on Pole uses the same projection method. But in difference you can define any place in the world as pole and see the world unwrapped around it.
