R. Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion Orientation


The Dymaxion orientation of R. Buckminster Fuller can be specified by placing one icosahedron vertex at 5.245390W longitude, 2.3008820N latitude, and placing an adjacent vertex at an azimuth of 7.466580 from the first vertex. Note that this placement is the only known icosahedron placement with no icosahedron vertices falling on land.

Four views of this placement are given below:
