Wow what a huge map...maybe we can get a PTO map the same size with a particular island chain?

That map has about the same size as the New Guinea map (~ 420 x 250 km). Only a very small part of the "particular island chain" would fit onto that map.

What makes it seem huge is the detail...

As plumps points out, the New Guinea map isn't all that different in size. The number of objects on it is totally differen't and it looks much larger because of that.

The detail comparison cannot be made really...

Several of the Pacific maps are much larger, up to 1000 x 1000km, but they're all or mostly open ocean.

Yeap, I guess it is the details that make it look so big!!

Maybe what makes Finland Map seem "big" is that Europe has much smaller scale -- smaller distances -- between key strategic places compared to the vast Pacific. I agree, on a personal or Emotional level, a normal 200km FB Europe map gives the same "impression" of size as the much larger 400km New Guinea map or 1000km Okinawa map, so yes Finland can produce emotions of titanic size in the traditionally small mapped European FB theater.
