Changes to the World Map Project
The World Map Project is cool and all, but the documentation is from 1995 and the world has changed since then. I think I ended up with a count of 196 countries. Here’s a brief list of the changes I included:
- In the documentation, there’s some messy dotted lines in Yugoslavia. That is now four countries: Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Kosovo.
- East Timor has gained independence from Indonesia.
- South Sudan has broken off from Sudan.
- I went by the UN designations by listing the countries, but I included Taiwan as its own country even though the UN doesn’t recognize it.
- Palau is now a country. I’m not sure what it was before.
Also, I read or heard somewhere you shouldn’t use chalk lines, but I found that they’re a snap. They’re easier to make and to erase than pencil.
That’s about it.
