Whenever we look at a physical map, we see the size of some countries that look so huge while some are very small, which often gives them a wrongful representation of the real size they have. In a lot of maps for example, China looks too small compared to how big is actually. Thanks to the technology and advanced apps, today we are able to get all kinds of information when it comes to the size, borders, territory of a country.
One interactive website that comes in handy in times like that is the True Size Map. This website allows you to drag countries and continents around the Mercator projection and see how big they are or aren’t. It is very simple to use. All you have to do is type the name of the country you want to know more about, and you can drag it across the map if you want to compare it to other countries.
This great website has helped a lot on shaping our perspective when it comes to the size of certain countries. Once you visit the website, there’s a short video tutorial that shows you how the map works. Below we made a list of some countries that were compared to their true size.
