    Gerardus Mercator is the man. The map is the Mercator projection that he presented.

    The Mercator projection is a cylindrical map projection presented by the Flemish geographer and cartographer Gerardus Mercator, in 1569. It became the standard map projection for nautical purposes because of its ability to represent lines of constant course, known as rhumb lines or loxodromes, as straight segments.

    The ONLY place the scale of Mercator’s projections could ever be completely accurate is along the Equator.
