01. Olympic Gold Medalists

01. Some Prespective

Here is a perspective of how big the circle is.

  • Yeah great new section.
    Interesting to see the; not-your-every-day maps.
    Especially the maps which can change your perspective on a subject.
    Please more in the future.

  • Good stuff, looking forward for this kind of content in the future. It’d be awesome if it’s possible to feature content like early human migration, effects of the 2004 tsunami have on islands, and so on.
