Abstract: The conformal deformations of flattening and sphericalization of length metric spaces are considered. These deformations are dual to each other if the space satisfies a simple quantitative connectivity property. Moreover, the quasihyperbolic metrics corresponding to the flat and the spherical metrics are bilipschitz equivalent if a weaker connectivity condition is satisfied.
