These are quick studies by Andy Woodruff that squish the existing continents into charts of land by latitude and longitude. Some interesting observations: by longitude, Africa’s continental shape basically inverts; You can slightly notice India’s sub-continental protrusion upside-down as well; by latitude South America does something similar, and is the only continent still somewhat recognizable; surprisingly North America covers nearly as many columns of longitude as Asia – thank you Greenland! And of course the concentration of land is around the 50° and 30° latitude marks, and the 70° and 20°-30° longitude marks.
