Ever Given Ever Ywhere features an interactive map which lets users place a scale picture of the ill-fated ship at any point in the world in order to put into perspective it’s true size.

The Ever Given hit the headlines recently after it became wedged in Egypt’s Suez Canal, one of the world’s busiest trade routes.

The stranded cargo ship was finally set free after nearly a week on Monday, with the backlog of traffic left by the blockage expected to take four or five days to clear.

Here are pictures of the 1,312 foot Ever Given compared to some of the county's iconic landmarks and locations.
