The Early Devonian World

Mollewide Plate Tectonic Maps

The maps below are Mollewide (oval globe) projections showing global paleogeography for the past 600 million years. The maps are based on the spherical and rectangular globes in this series but are updated slightly. The projections were made from original rectangular maps and then projected into the mollewide format using Flexify®, a Photoshop® plugin. Mollewide projections show the entire globe in one view, but are distorted significantly along the margins of the globe. Each file is 600x1200 pixels (approximately 250kb). Grid lines are 30°x30°.
