Wall Globe:TM

In 2018 and the years of global positioning and Goggle Earth a new world map is only about 200 years late.[ha-ha] This world map projection would have been a real hit in 1850.
Wall Globe:TM is a new world map projection. What makes this projection different and maybe a little better than former world projections like Mercator, Molleide, Boggs and Robinson is that the land is not cut up and the land pieces [Continents] are at a relative correct size to each other. Greenland is much smaller than Australia in the real world and it is on this map as well.
A few years ago, I contacted a lady in the USA, that has a PhD in cartography and 15
years with the US government map services, she confirmed to me [in a letter] that in her opinion Wall Globe:TM is in fact a new world projection.  [ USA Copyright number is  VAu 648566 ]

Marketing Analysis and Marketing Plan: 
Industry Profile and Trends Societies around the world are starting to understand the negative consequences of conventional agricultural practises. The “Green Revolution” was successful in feeding a growing global population, but not without dire environmental impacts and health implications to people and animals. There is a growing trend to become a more ‘conscious consumer’ and reduce our environmental footprint by supporting local farmers. Our product enables anyone to become a farmer by providing them with a vertical garden apparatus to grow the plants they choose in a small space, such as a patio or deck. The inner vermicomposting system provides rich nutrients for your plants so you can grow healthy organic fruit, vegetables, and/or herbs without the use of chemical fertilizers.  Urban gardening is not a new phenomenon, in times of past economic hardship citizens were encouraged to grow their own food. During both the World Wars homeowners in cities were encouraged to transform lawns and flowerbeds into “Victory Gardens” to supplement the food supply. In North America, this last decade has experienced a resurgence in urban gardening. Urban gardening has been particularly important within American cities that were hit hard by the 2008 financial crisis. Communities referred to as urban food deserts have limited access to grocery stores that carry fresh fruits and vegetables. This has motivated many communities to start growing their own food. Some Canadian cities also have urban food deserts. For example, in a study published in the International Journal of Health Geographic, researchers found that the number of residents who had easy access to a supermarket  has dropped from 75 per cent to 20 per cent over 40 years . If more people are able to grow their own produce this will help increase their food security and long term resilience. Urbanization is a global trend and  city population will continue to increase, creating even more demand for garden plots. Although community gardens are important for building social capital, people should not have to wait for a plot to be able to grow their own food. By providing an affordable alternative to a plot, the Urban Towergarden can help provide people in apartments a space to grow their own food.  A rising interest in city gardening has also lead to an increase of gardening apparatuses on the market. Even Ikea has recently released open-source blueprints for building a large DIY spherical gardening apparatus called the Grow Room, and have started selling tiered indoor gardening units and gardening supplies. Other vertical gardening products are on the market, but none of them come in kit form.
