Well, we thought about it and we were not alone as plenty of people on the Montana Subreddit had thought about it too.

Thankfully we have some truly great and talented cartographers in Montana that are here to help us understand.

Because before I saw what they showed me, I never truly understood, or maybe could even comprehend just how massive Montana really is in size.

What Is A Cartographer?

According to the website Indeed a cartographer is as follows:

A cartographer is a professional who makes maps to communicate spatial information. They gather data from geodetic surveys, satellite images and other methods to help governments with urban and regional planning and environmental condition monitoring. The field of cartography, or study of maps, combines science, technology and art to represent a geographical area.

I wanted you to know what one was so you'd know that what you are about to see is truly 100% just how big Montana is.

Although it did take some crunching of numbers until they were able to accurately represent the massive size of Montana.
