The Meridian 11°15 East was proposed as prime meridian by Arno Peters in the Peters World Map. The Meridian is the antipode of 168°45' West of Greenwich which runs through the Bering Strait and was proposed as a new date line. On Peters World Map the easternmost part of Asia and Russia is not displayed left of Alaska, as it is usually done, but on the right side as the rest of Russia and Asia.

The meridian, 11° 15' East of Greenwich traverses the city center of Florence in Italy and therefore is also known as Florence Meridian.
