sorry, i meant a 2d representation of a globe.
I have it setup where its possible to zoom out to a world basemap, so I
to a marketing bod, it looks similar to this;
(but this is not my version, as I'm developing it on an internal server)
and they said can make it so that the complete map is projected onto a 2d
centered about a given point, because that looks nicer. so i said I will see
I can do.
