Excerpt from Mercator/Our History link

The story began in 1995. Some thirty scientists – oceanographers, meteorologists, mathematicians and engineers – met in a small village in the Périgord region.(...) “Mercator Project” was born, in tribute to the pioneering Flemish cartographer who created one of the first atlases and gave us one of the map projections most widely-used by oceanographers today.
