Map Projections:

Mercator:

http://www.nevron.com/Gallery.DiagramFor.NET.Maps.MapProjections.aspx

Whats wrong?, Stretches the poles, which disorients the sizes of Greenland and Antarctica, while keeping the central area's constant so their sizes are correct.

Robinson:

Whats wrong?, Distorts the size and shape, but is commonly used because it keeps the general size of the oceans.

Peters:

Whats wrong?, The continents look "tall and skinny", squishes the north and south poles so they look significantly smaller.

Conical:

Whats wrong?, Is made from a top view so the sizes and spacing is off as well as Antarctica isn't even included.
