Map of the Day: Time Zone v. Solar Time

Timezone

Slate highlights the above map:

The map above, created by math blogger and Google engineer Stefano Maggiolo (click here for a full-size version), shows the difference between clock time and “solar time”a schedule in which the sun is at its highest point in the sky at exactly 12 noon.

For whatever reason, more of the world seems to be a little bit like Spainthe sun rises and sets later in the day than it shouldthan the other way around. The “late” places are shown in red, the “early” places in green. The deeper the shade, the more off the time is.
