Mapping relative sizes

Shadow forwarded along two interesting map links. The first is Texas overlaid on a few different countries: http://imgur.com/gallery/Mbz5JJe

But the second lets you trace an outline, and then projection corrects it for other places. This lets you do the "how big really is Alaska compared to Texas?" visually (about 2x by square miles). http://mapfrappe.com/?show=14243
