The True Size of Africa

The True Size of Africa

Today I came across an interesting infographic, by California-based German graphical designer Kai Krause, putting the size of the African continent in comparison with several areas of the developed world. If you look at the world map on Google, for example, Africa doesn’t look that much bigger compared to China or the United States. In reality though, it’s a lot bigger. Krause scales countries by their area in square kilometers and then fits them into a Africa’s borders for some perspective.

I’ll leave the judgement to you now to decide what unused potential the dark continent might hold, and how it hasn’t been merely used for its good since the start of humanity!
