'True Size Map' Proves You've Been Picturing The Planet All Wrong

It'll rock your world.

Prepare yourself for a whole new kind of geography lesson.

The True Size Map shows countries as many travelers would say they are meant to be seen: in their "true," relative sizes. The inventors of the handy online tool point out that most maps are based on the Mercator projection, a schema that distorts the scale of many countries because it enlarges nations as they get farther from the Equator. While helpful in some cases, this doesn't give travelers a totally accurate vision of the Earth's spacial layout. True Size's answer to map-making, however, will seriously put your trip into perspective.
