Found a website that has a whole bunch of info about map projections (the different ways a globe can be displayed on a flat surface). The first link (http://www.progonos.com/furuti/MapProj/Normal/ProjPoly/projPoly.html#gntoct) is a page on the site that uses different polyhedrons and mathematical shapes to display a globe.

The second link (http://www.progonos.com/furuti/MapProj/Normal/TOC/cartTOC.html) is to the main page that has a whole bunch of different ways a globe can be displayed. If you are interested in myriad ways to display the continents of a world, give Pogonos a look.

I thank thee for these links. I've had some interest in different projections for a while, but didn't actively look for information, so this makes a really good starting point when I do! :)
