Alaska Size Comparison Maps

The fun little map I made the other day while my kids were watching a movie showing the size of Alaska compared to other states really took off. In response, I put together this new set of maps where different states are used. Some states are used in more than one map and others appear only once. The states are depicted in an Albers equal area map projection. As the name implies, an equal area projection leaves the relative sizes of the states proportionally accurate. Feel free to share these maps with your friends, but please talk with me first before placing them on printed materials.

And now, the maps ....
