A little goofy, but what good is the internet if you can't superimpose the borders of states and countries onto other states and countries to get a sense of their relative sizes during an afternoon lull.
A site called The True Size allows just that. So, of course, we selected New York State and moved it around the world. See the screengrab above.
By the way, one of the interesting things about that site is the way it highlights how map projections affect the size of countries. As you move New York State north and south around the world, its outline grows, shrinks, and warps.
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
