When you look at a standard World map, the dimensions of countries become skewed to fit the curvature of the globe. This is especially true of the continent of Africa, which is often under-rated in its physical vastness.
Before seeing the infographic below, had someone told me that you could fit the entirety of USA, Spain, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, Switzerland, Japan, China, Eastern Europe and India into the African continent, I would laugh it off. Not only that, you could fit USA into the continent around three times over.
What this brings to light is the pure potential of the land mass: a deep-rooted history for humanity, flora and fauna in unison but also a wealth of spatial resource for the future of mankind.
