if you draw a rectangle on europe and connect the four corners straight and diagonally, you see that the lengths are equal to the lengths in a straight rectangle.

Wait, when did you do this? How big is it? Where can I see this rectangle? I'm sure it would have been in the news.

You can do it by yourself. We don't expect them to share this information because the media are already ruled by evil forces. Now let's make an example online if you want.

I try to stay in Europe as much as possible. The first point somwehere in UK.

First point Coordinates: (51,0)

The second point (51,15)

Distance (51,0) to (51,15) = 1.047,84 kms.

The third point (45,15)

Distance (51,15) to (45,15) = 1.715,02-1.047,84= 667,18kms.

The fourth point (45,0)

Distance (45,15) to (45,0) = 2.892,73 - 1.715,02 = 1.177,71kms.

The area sum:

distance (45,0) to (51,0)= 3.559,90 - 2.892,73 = 667,17 kms.

Area from google: 741.460,69 km²

Lets draw the distances on a flat paper:

We've found the diagonal as 1295,83 kms. This is flat diagonal if the distances were flat then would be. Lets verify:

Same distance in map is; 1296,70kms.

Total mistake: 0,87 kms.

mistake proportionally: 0,87/1296,7= 0,0007 = 0,07 %

quadratic error for area calculations: 0,07x2 = 0,14%

Area calculated:

(1177,71+1047,84) x 664,01 /2 = 738.893, 73 km²

areal mistake: (741.460,69 - 738.893,73) / 741.460,69 = 0,003 = 0,3 % < 0,5% mathematical error limit.

Results:

1) When we draw the cities in the map on a plain paper, the resulting diagonels and areas are close to the value to be calculated globally and the resulting error remains within the mathematical error limit.

2) field value written on the map is 2 times more than the error in the diagonal value read. in other words, the field value on the map is a fabricated, it does not reflect the truth.

in short, the above calculations show that the measurements will be compatible if the european map is accepted as flat.

in other words, the distances measured above are the values taken from the flat world map. The sphere representation consists of only projection.
