Different colors represent different countries and regions, whereas different shades of one color represent their internal divisions.

A map projection is a way how to transform points on a Earth to points on a map. This 3D map uses Plate Carree projection, a simple variant of the equidistant cylindrical projection originated in the ancient times. The parallels and meridians are equally spaced, they together form equally sized squares over the entire world map.

Using simple grid, where each cell has the same size and shape, brings in significant benefits. For comparison, the detailed maps of the area around 55° 56' 31" N, 12° 40' 30" W use Mercator projection instead. The Mercator projection preserves the shapes and angles of small areas better, but on the other hand, it significantly distorts the size of areas.
