No, what your describing is more like a Klein bottle what I mean is like a Quaternion. For example there is no way to map the surface of a sphere to a 2D square using real numbers. But if you allow big dark imaginary spaces say, between Alaska and the eastern tip of Russia (Chukotsky) you can make it work. You just need to remember to drop imaginary solutions when you ask "what is 1,607 miles west of Juneau", or if you're a non-U.S. Slash Dotter "what is 2,586 km east of Anadyr ."
