    For an untrained eye, maps is usually a little bit complicated, particularly with regards to evaluating sizes. Since Earth is spherical, representing it on a flat map results in a sure stage of distortion. And should you examine several types of maps, you’ll be able to clearly see that some areas differ in scale – that’s as a result of there’s no unified technique for projection. Nevertheless, the commonest one we acknowledge is the Mercator projection, recommended by geographer and cartographer Gerardus Mercator all the best way again in 1569.

    One map lover, going by the title of Mkyner on Imgur determined to match the sizes of assorted international locations to america of America by making a sequence of overlapping maps. Wanting on the maps, you’ll understand simply how huge the USA is – in spite of everything, it’s even greater than Australia!
