Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Back in February, we reported about Nuggets and Avalanche owner Stan Kroenke's purchase of a Texas ranch the size of a country.

Shortly thereafter, the folks at the SelfStorage.com Moving blog proved it via a series of maps that compared the ranch's size to that of Panama, Puerto Rico and a slew of cities across the U.S.

Now, SelfStorage.com mapmaker Brian Vaughn Shreckengast is thinking even bigger: He's created maps in which he compares Colorado to eighteen states and countries.

Ever wonder if Colorado is bigger than Greece? Or Iraq? Or Madagascar? Or Scandinavia? Or lots more? We've got you covered.

Continue to see all eighteen maps — and check out the original post.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
