Maps

  • Split view and overlapping comparison of maps at the same scale. Compare relative sizes of cities, countries, islands, or other terrain features.
  • Two Maps (Mercator)

    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.
