В шкале Фаренгейта в качестве базовой точки отсчёта за 100 градусов принята нормальная температура человеческого тела.
100 градусов по Фаренгейту примерно соответствуют 37,8 градусам Цельсия.

This map was created by Stuart McArthur of Melbourne, Australia. He drew his first South-Up map when he was 12 years old (1970). His geography teacher told him to re-do his assignment with the "correct" way up if he wanted to pass. Three years later he was an exchange student in Japan. He was taunted by his exchange student-friends from the USA for coming from "the bottom of the world." It was then, at age 15, he resolved to one day publish a map with Australia at the top. Six years later, while at Melbourne University, he produced the world's first "modern" south up map and launched it on Australia day in 1979. It has sold over 350,000 copies to date.

This is an Australian map of the world designed by Donald Blygh , who said, "I am sick and tired of seeing my beautiful country stuck in the bottom right-hand corner of world maps. I want a map with Australia at the top and in the middle.”
