Finland is small or large by comparison

What an interesting tool a friend of mine found!  Check your country, city or a lake...

Here is Finland on top of the UK:

You can move the Google Map beneath your "drawing" and see how the size changes and compares, getting smaller towards the Equator and larger when nearing the Poles.

Here is the main page where you can create the outlines of anything and see it transform in size.
Read the instructions carefully and have fun!

I wish the schools would use this...
