Numbers we can relate to

Numbers and journalists do not always mix. Here is an excellent site to help journalists convert numerical units (litres, kilograms, metres) into someting their audience can relate to. You simply type the number into a box and the site coverts those numbers into someting an audience can visualise. Did you know, for example, that 13,000 kilometres is equivalent to twice the Earth’s radius, or two Amazon rivers? This post also appears on my other blog, Globalmojo.
