What’s Bigger: Yemen Or Virginia? There’s An App For That

From NPR by Jason Beaubien:

“The headlines tell a lot about the crisis in Yemen: internal strife, evacuations of international aid workers, Saudi Arabian airstrikes.

But you may have one very basic question that you can’t easily find an answer for: How big is Yemen, anyway?

You can look at maps and check out Wikipedia but wouldn’t it be great to just to slap an outline of Yemen on top of a map of the United States to get a sense of its size?

IfItWereMyHome.com lets you do just that.”
