It Ain't Easy Being Greenland

2022: Day 4 (Green)

Nov 4, 2022

The Mercator projection gets a bad rap for how it distorts Greenland, but there's many projections out there that also do weird things to the country. I wanted to explore the different ways Greenland gets warped for this day.

Tool: ArcGIS Pro



  1. Definition Query for just Greenland.

  2. Symbolize as desired.

  3. Copy map and paste ten new maps and change the projection in each map to a different one.

  4. Add all map frames to layout and make sure each has the same scale (1:60,000,000).
