North pole is upside of the globe

1. The map size represented in the question is actually correct. That is how small land masses are.
2. The direction is correct. Actually the famous image of the blue pearl was taken inverted, which means that the first picture of earth actually had North America in the southern part. Which means that the map we generally see is inverted to suit either "convention" or tyranny of "north is better". But seriously, what is convention :)
3. The map given in the question is 100% correct. Best of luck getting you head around it.
