Title: Logarithmic Maps of the Universe
Url: http://www.astro.princeton.edu/universe/
Creator: Gott, Richard
Publisher: Princeton University
Description: Teachers can use this website to teach students about this recently revised map of the universe which illustrates recent discoveries, ranging from Kuiper belt objects in the Solar system, to the galaxies and quasars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. This map projection, based on the logarithm map of the complex plane, preserves shapes locally, and yet is able to display the entire range of astronomical scales from the Earth's neighborhood to the cosmic microwave background.
