How Big Is Colorado Compared to...?

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 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, 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.
