The True SizeEver wonder what a country’s true size is? What’s cool about The True Size is that it allows users to input any country in the world and then, using their Google Map layout, pick it up and move it to another section to see what the true size really is. You can also zoom in or out and do multiple countries at once. I just typed in Italy and dragged it across the Atlantic to California and could see they are indeed about the same size, as I once read in a guide book. Some countries are significantly larger or smaller than what the Mercator maps always depict them to be (like Greenland). Greenland is not as big as I thought. In fact, according to this map, it’s about the same size of Mexico. Who knew? If you’re a geography geek like I am, you’re sure to love this site.
