In this article we explain how to use Intermap to get a better sense of where you are in the world and how it can help you make sense of the news.
The interactive map tool is built using information from around four million locations around the globe.
When you zoom in on a city, you can click on the map to see how close you are to the city, or zoom in further to see the entire city.
In many countries, you will find the map’s information overlaid on top of your own information, including information from national parks, landmarks, beaches and the like.
You can click around on the screen to zoom in and out of the map, and you can zoom in to zoom out of any point on the globe, too.
To access the map in any country, you need to be a member of the Intermap website, which is open to the public.
You are also able to access the maps from your smartphone, although that can be a bit tricky, as it can take some time for the interactive maps to load in the browser.
