A wallpaper map is a conformal projection of a spherical
earth onto regular polygons with which the plane can be tiled
continuously. A complete set of distinct wallpaper maps
that satisfy certain natural symmetry conditions is derived
and illustrated. Though all of the projections have been
published before, the family had not been characterized as
a whole. Some wallpaper maps generalize to one-parameter
subfamilies in which the sphere is pre-transformed by a
