Some Interesting Map Overlays
All maps face the challenge of making the globe appear to scale in two

shape consistent — not both — which skews our perception of continents and
countries one way or the other.
But when you compare square mileage, a whole new world appears. Inspired by
map of Africa's true size from German graphic designer
Kai Krause, we created 11
map overlays to open your eyes to some real geography.
