The TRUE scale of the Earth: Interactive map shows how the US, India and China could ALL fit inside Africa - and why traditional atlases have got it wrong

It’s difficult to show the spherical Earth on a 2D map, with countries becoming distorted in different ways.

Now two computer developers in Detroit, Michigan, have created an interactive map called 'The True Size Of,' which shows how large countries really are compared to one another.

It allows you to search for a country and drag it on top of another one to show how the scale of a country is distorted the closer it gets to the Earth’s poles
