HAVE YOU ever wondered what cities or countries sit on the same latitude as you? Wonder no more. This map from Mapmania below will answer your question.

Now, you know that Miami is on the same latitude as Egypt and that Missoula is on the same latitude as Switzerland. Looking at a Mercator projection, it can be quite difficult to guess these equivalences without packing up your road trip gear and heading out to see for yourself.

For more precision, Check out Beardsley Klamm‘s map where you can see North America with all major western European cities laid over at the correct latitude, as well as American cities laid over a map of Western Europe.
