Abstract: Here we want to highlight the effects that the choice of cartographic projection has on the final results of paleogeographic reconstructions on a smaller Earth’s radius of the current one, which are carried out following the concept of the expanding Earth. It is proposed the search for a transformation that mimics more closely the geological extension of the continents, providing a first simple example.
