Arrow Really Good World Historicial Maps

The website found in the link below has a great collection of maps that cover the whole world.

If you scroll down the home page a little bit, the maps and indexed chronologically and by continent.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

This Wacky World Map Just Won Japan's Biggest Design Award
The centuries-old Mercator projection is a notoriously inaccurate world map. For one thing, Greenland isn’t the massive land mass as shown on the map. But a new map by artist and architect Hajime Narukawa offers what’s possibly the most proportional map we’ve ever seen.

Incredible site!

Do you guys think the Mercator projection would be ever replaced by this Narukawa's design?

This puts into scene how important are maps as a functional tool for presenting specific information, which depends of what you want to extract/show from/in them, not linked to a strictly geo-positionated reference.
