I’ve always, whether because of planning a walk, a trip, or just curiosity, wondered how large city X is compared with city Y, or say how Hawaii compares to the Canary Islands.

For example if I’m going to Hawaii and want to drive around the island, getting a sense of the distances relative to a place or area I’m familiar with would give me a better sense of what itinerary is manageable during a day or during the trip given the driving involved.
