Ever wonder why northern countries are so big? - Carlitos

This quote fue agregado por carlitoslchm
I'm pretty sure we've looked at Google Maps and have wondered, why do countries seem to get bigger the farther they are from the equator?

But as you drag it toward the equator its real size is revealed.

I think it's because of the Mercator Projection of maps. Basically, if you want to represent the surface of a sphere (the Earth) as a rectangle, something is going to get distorted.
