Remarks Gringorten wanted to create a square map in order to efficiently use space (e.g. in printed articles). Moreover it should be equal-area and without massive distortions or interruptions of the continents.

The map shows a modification, rearranged giving each hemisphere an entire square, and centered to 40° North, 160° East and an axial tilt of 3° clockwise.
