Charting success

'Let any man lay the map of Australia before him, and regard the blank upon its surface, and then let me ask him if it would not be an honourable achievement to be the first to place foot in its centre' - Charles Sturt, 1849.

This map (constructed from parts of the UK and Australian coastline) takes a kind of 'back to the future' approach in which all people are implicated, one way or another.
