    Another site with a similar idea:

    Link: Compare the area of two different countries side-by-side or overlapping

    Comparea lets you compare the area of two geographic features (continents, countries, states). Because of the projection that Comparea uses, this comparison is valid (the size of the features is proportional to their area) and suffers from minimal distortion. This lets you see just how big Greenland or Alaska really is...
