Google Earth Plug-in: Worldmap in lake

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files

This worldmap in Lake Klejtrup was created 1944 to 1969 by a danish-american, Soeren Poulsen.
1943 he came back to this place where he was born and he found a piece of rock that looked like Jutland peninsula and after this find he wanted to create this world map.

Facts about the map:
• The Map measures 45 metres by 90 (49 yards by 98).
• One 111-kilometer (69 miles) latitude corresponds to 27 centimetres (11 inches) on the map.
• Owing to the difficulties of spreading out our planet‘s globular shape, the Northern Hemisphere is marked in two places, thus ensuring a better impression of the correct distances between the countries.
• Red poles mark the Equator.

It's open to public from may 1st. to sept. 30th.
