-Google Earth 2015 shows Greenland as about one third larger than Alaska -recent Google Earth shows Greenland almost as large as Canada!!! Except the information has not updated yet?
It will be 4 oclock soon-time to discuss Greenland-Roman numerals morphing?
2015 Greenland from Google Earth
Gosur satellite maps 2017 Greenland!!!
Various computer generated maps
A map on a globe and a flat map will be different, for when it is flattened there are large distortions around the poles.. Here is a site that lets you compare the size of countries by moving them around on the map...
´´The problem, you see, is that the earth isn't flat. This is generally considered to be a good thing: it means you can travel east from Hong Kong to Los Angeles, for example, without falling over the edge – but it's a right pain in the bum for cartographers.
That’s because the surface of a sphere cannot be turned into a flat sheet without some major distortions around the edges. The Mercator Projection is a case in point. Invented by a Flemish geographer, Gerardus Mercator, in the 16th century, it re-imagines the earth as the surface of a cylinder.
When laid out flat, it’s pleasingly rectangular, and its eastern and western edges line up neatly. This projection is pretty useful if you're, say, trying to steer a ship across an ocean, so in its 446 years of life it's become one of the standard maps of the world.
But it's also done some odd things to our idea of how the world looks. In reality, lines of longitude converge at the poles; on the map, they're parallel. As a result, the closer you get to the poles, the more distorted the map becomes, and the bigger things look relative to their actual size.
Thus it is that we’ve all got stuck with maps of the world which show Africa (30.4mkm2) as basically the same size as Greenland (2.2mkm2), rather than a whole order of magnitude bigger.
The True Size is a website that lets you compare the size of any nation or US state to other land masses, by allowing you to move them around to anywhere else on the map. So, when left right up in the north of the map, Greenland does indeed look huge: Place it next to Africa though, and you can see it really isn't all that big..´´
so the satellites maps are wrong
I wrote this years ago. But in the early 20s and 30s maps and globes reflected not actual land mass or size. It reflective the mentality of those who created the maps. Have you noticed that maps made in that era showed the USA as huge comoared to canada. Australia. Africa and yes, even greenland. Thats because the maps were never designed to show relevance to size but geopolitical and military standings. China was smaller and egland was bigger. Have a look pet and you will see the maps up till recently were only produced to inflate the egos of americans. Making the size of the country reflect their power. Africa is massive now compared to how it was presented in high school.
I see no satellite-pics in those photos. All I see are approximations, as in.. The approximated maps you get just BEFORE you go to satellite-mode....
Stupid Russians are getting on me nerves. They can't even TROLL right... ;)
На следующий день вы понимаете, что элиты пропаганды против России в основном лежит и предназначен для вызвать путаницу и ненависть к одноплеменникам. Я надеюсь один день вы можете увидеть это.
"The next day, you understand that the elite of propaganda against Russia basically lies and is intended to cause confusion and hatred towards one-born people. I hope one day you can see it."
Ya, but .. I didn't draw my conclusions from observation of the last few years Media-content... My conclusions come from pure observation where the empirical evidence just keeps piling up in front of me. ;)
Someone is working very very hard to drive a wedge between the western civilians and their elected officials, and it has been going on for at least 20 years. I do not know who that someone is, but it must be someone who's not in favour of Democracy as such, and I've learned to spot and counteract most his BS straight on.. ;)
You Andromedan however, I shall ALWAYS respect.
Just explain to me exactly HOW I am WRONG here, and I shall put my mind to rest immediately (unless you point me to a 'Youtube University'-video. If you do that, I'll bite your head off, metaphorically speaking of course).. :)
Hahaha. Your not wrong Acute. Just see things differently to me. I to see the wedge. Though i dont see it as being a negative thing. Perhaps because i live in Australia i dont witness first hand how divided america is. Though from discernment and discovery i have found that a new reset in america is certainly needed.
Also you tube has fail army. It cant be all bad can it? Haha
In regards to democracy. Have you noticed each country america has tried to introduce democracy? Through the use of military might. I dont think thats democracy but more like the actions of tyrannical leaders.
I wont send you to Youtube to find answers to your question.
But i will say this.
Give a man a Gun he can rob a bank.
Give a man a Bank. He can rob the world.
Thats where you will find the answers to who is driving a wedge between americans and their officials.
Give a man a credit card, and he can rob both the bank as well as the world.
How. When as soon as you use it your now robbed of money through interest?
