Researchers’ Blog Possible projection and extent to use in the future

HongKong to Vancouver BC
Future visualizations of the trans-oceanic voyages in the head-tax database could possibly use a conic projection like this one.

Until I have a better Flash document, I'll post this static map frame. I suspect the actual sea route varies from the one I've drawn here. -Jake
