Since some people here don't understand the challenge, here it is again:


Using this:

Or any reliable source on distances between cities,

Find any FE map large enough to contains all continents, including Antarctica, consistant with the distances given above.

Lrn2scale, you useless excuse for a human.

Build a representation of the Earth with all distances coherent. (clue: the map doesn't have to be planar).

To try and help EmperorZhark to understand, here is a graphical explanation of the FE distance model.

It is you who doesn't make any effort. I've even provided an extra illustration to explain this to you.

They are so identical that some are circles, other ellipses.

Only if you assume the Euclidean 3-dimensional geometry. Such an assumption is necessary for RE, so you take it for granted. However, it is a very invalid assumption.

Its because you do not understand the answer. The conversation cannot move on until you grasp how a map works. Only then can you object to the flat earth theory. You are being given the answer repeatedly, and you don't get it. It is you that fails.

True, perhaps you could use a geometry with roughly uniform positive curvature.

By no means. This would render the existence of most of space impossible.

Actually, I have a metric to describe such a manifold:


h = height above sea level (in meters)
λ = longitude
Φ = latitude

The distance between two points is calculated by finding the shortest path between them (minimize ∫ds from point 1 to point 2.)

That is my FE model.

Anyways, what geometry are you considering?

This, essentially, but with inclusion of EA distortion, which causes a strong distinction between mechanical and optical observations.

Using non-euclidean space and looking at the earth in a fractal manner we solve all issues with geography on a flat earth.

So the radius of the earth actually decreases to zero as you go close the south pole?

What evidence brought you to conclude that the earth is like this?

No, the radius remains constant. Why would it change?

FE = flat map = euclidean geometry = no deformation = no projection, only a scale.

If you'd have to draw a map of a FE, just imagine 26 rows with the numbers 1 to 26 and 26 columns with the letters A to Z, forming 26 x 26 squares, each representing roughly 1,000 miles.

Using the simples laws of geometry (and why should it be different because we are dealing with flat surfaces), we know that any distance in square F12 = the ones in V5.

This is valid using any scale.

I don't see the reason why you want to use anything more complicated than this.

Of course, including a variable scale, such as that of the Mercator map or the FE map.

It's not complicated at all. You're just dismissing it without even trying to think about it. It's like with people who say maths is hard because they don't pay attention in class.

So you don't believe the Earth is flat. You have been noted.
You, sir, can't comprehend the idea of bottoms.

Just imagine you take a photo of FE, from space.

Then you draw a map directly from the photo.

There you have your FE map.

I'd just like to see what it looks like.
