Country size comparison

This tool allows you to see the relative size of one country compared to another. We'll show you the perimeters of two different countries on the same map. To get started, select two countries below, and hit 'Go'!.

How does this work?

We maintain a collection of data stored in the KML format that describe the perimeter of a country using a set of points. By using the Mapbox Maps API, we are able to place that country anywhere in the world in order to compare country sizes. Give it a shot, you might be surprised how big some countries are in comparison to others!
