Your point being? You can make an equidistant projection from any singular point on the globe. This map uses the north pole because it's what we consider "up" on the sphere. An equidistant projection distorts how far one point is from another depending on how far both those points are from the source point, it's not an accurate respresentation of what the Earth looks like, it's how it appears if you took a ball and squashed it flat.
