R. Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion Projection is a method of projecting the spherical earth onto a twenty-sided polyhedron known as an icosahedron. This icosahedron is then unfolded in such a way that the major land masses will appear whole, without the map borders breaking them apart. More information may be found at the Buckminster Fuller Institute (www.bfi.org).
The "Fuller" Projection has no Parameters:
NOTE: Only a spherical form of this projection is used. The semi-major axis of the ellipsoid (sphere) is used for forward and inverse projection from grid to geodetic coordinates within the system wherein this projection is incorporated.
