Tectonics cut’n’fold, Maybe
Good luck trying to put this one together.
I say that in good fun. I actually enjoyed the challenge and possibilities of assembling this map, which uses as the map boundary the entire set of earth’s active tectonic lines (minus a few prunings of the topological tree). And I’ve only done one, and used too much tape, which limits the folded globe’s responsiveness to touch. But, like I say, the possibilities are enchanting.
Here is the globe I made:
and, just for reference, here is Paul Lowman’s Global Tectonic Activity Map.
I’ll post an annotated version soon, showing the boundaries used to make the constant-scale natural boundary map.
