I'm working on a project where I have data points in the UK, US, France/Italy, Hong Kong and Japan. I want to show a world map with mini charts at each of these locations.
For this project, it makes sense to use a map projection that emphasises the northern hemisphere, so that I have more space for the charts.
Should I just use Mercator?
Or are there other projections that are also/more suited to rendering the northern hemisphere?
