Sažetak
On the official website of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) (icaci.org) two web maps were published in order to portray information about the ICA national and affiliate members on the world map. These maps show the world in Mercator projection, which is a poor choice for the general purpose world maps. Because we believe that promotion of the proper use of map projections to everybody and everywhere is of great importance, we created new maps that show the world in Winkel Tripel projection, which imposes as a far better choice of map projection for the world maps. Maps presented in this paper were made by AmMap – a free tool for creating interactive maps. Since all base maps supplied by the default version of this tool use Mercator projection, we described the workflow that can be used for authoring any particular map in chosen map projection and ensures its successful implementation with AmMap.
