#TheTrueSize - size of #DRCongo #Zaire compared to @Greenland ('as is' on map and superimposed on Greenland).

The common #world #map is the #Mercator and it exaggerates the #size of countries nearer the #poles (US, Russia, Europe), while downplaying those near the #equator (e.g. the #African Continent).

Using projections from www.TheTrueSize.com we show the actual comparisons. For actual #area sizes (in sq km) see our world #profile page (click on Places)

#PTS - Don't forget to see the #Mount #Nyiragongo #volcano located inside #Virunga #National #Park which is about 20 km north of the town of #Goma and #Lake #Kivu ... close to @Rwanda .

It is the world's largest #lava lake and those who make the journey will have awesome views from the volcano’s rim, 1,380 feet above the ground. Also at 1,300 feet deep, the lava lake has created one of the wonders of the African continent.
