  BECAUSE SO MANY modern human activities affect not only local

  communities but the entire Planet, Fullers Dymaxion Map has

  proved especially beneficial to individuals involved in planning.

  People who forecast future trends and devise strategies involving

  global issues find the Dymaxion Map particularly helpful because

  [IT] allows them to observe all Earth’s landmasses portrayed in

  accurate relationship to one another.

  As a result of his study of and work within the maturing field of

  aeronautics, Bucky began to appreciate the aeronautical perspective

  that both the land and water areas of the surface of the Earth 

  provide the inner boundary of an always available, yet only recently

  discovered and utilised, unbroken “ocean of air”. The outer limit of

  that ocean of air is the threshold of outer space where airplanes

  cannot fly. Even in the 1930s, Fuller understood  that during the

  first half of this century, the leading edge of transportation was

  gradually shifting from water to air in a process unnoticed by most 

  people. With that transformation, the leading edge of innovation

  also moved from the nautical to the aerospace industry.
