Portugal shape area, China shape area

to Wolfram|alpha I can get two country shapes, but how can I get them on top of each other at the same scale? The output I'm looking for is what you get from Mapfight.

  • Are you trying to do this from within WolframAlpha? What are you looking for that's different from a Portugal v China Mapfight? Commented Jun 4, 2013 at 22:27
  • Yes, within WolframAlpha. I'd like to use WolframAlpha's shapes as they are significantly more detailed than Mapfight's. For example, South Korea vs. Taiwan mapfight and wolfram alpha.
