The Dymaxion map was created by RBF in 1943 to give a map of the
world with minimal distortion of land masses (as compared to
standard projection maps) and without any breaks in the
continents.

There are several versions of it, which you can get from the Fuller
Institute in LA. The map does have Lat/Long lines on it, but I don't
know if the icosa verticies are referenced specifically to Lat/long
coords.

I'll dust off my copy at home and see if the verticies are marked.

Good Luck!
