You may have noticed that I generally prefer simple spherical (orthographic) projections for displaying global fields. Even though it takes several projections to convey all the information.
But I use lat/lon maps for comparisons, and more recently, Hammer projections for comparison with NOAA and MP.

This time, for variety, I've positioned the views differently. The viewing cube is tangent to the pole, so the foci are points along a N and S latitude, at about 40°. The squares to click on follow that pattern.(Due to a slight inadequacy in the current JS, please don't click on this one before clicking on the top one).
