The True Size Of – maps lie, see how big countries really are

The True Size Of

So, we’ve all seen the memes, you know the ones that state that all of Europe can fit inside of the United States or that China can eat everyone for breakfast like a dragon devouring damsels. You’ve also probably seen the responses refuting the sizes of things. The True Size Of is the website that wants to show how big countries are, really.

This is a cool little website that gives you a map of the world with all the countries. In the box at the top, you type in what country you want to compare and it pops out as a colored outline that you can move around. From there, just move it to where you want.

Maps are super distorted but this site makes changes for that distortion so no matter where you picked the piece from or where it goes, it still remains true to size. It’s a nifty little learning tool and is completely free to use. Head over to the website to check it out.
