The True Size Of, An Online Map Tool to Better Compare the Size of Countries

The True Size Of

The True Size Of

The True Size Of is an online map tool built to let users better compare the size of countries in relation to each other. Users can add a country’s outline to the map, and as they move it around, the outline resizes itself to compensate for the Mercator projection which distorts the apparent size of countries in order to represent the round Earth as a two-dimensional image.
