A new web application lets users visualize what the Ever Given ship would look like when stuck in different places other than the Suez Canal.
Map enthusiast Garrett Dash Nelson created the new tool, called ‘Ever Given Everywhere’, and it features an interactive world atlas and a digital replica of the cargo ship that can be placed anywhere in the world.
“I took 10 minutes out of my life to create a @glitch app that lets you wedge the Ever Given anywhere you want in the world. Here it is stuck in Boston Harbor,” he tweeted while sharing a thread featuring the ship wedged in several other places.
The user shared photos of the cargo ship stranded everywhere from Hudson, Panama Canal to Las Vegas. The tweet immediately went viral, and soon, users began playing around with the web application.
Check out some of the results below.

Doesn't quite block the Mississippi in front of the Gateway Arch, but this gives a pretty good sense of scale for midwesterners to understand how big it is. pic.twitter.com/OtygUtZgJ4— BJ Kennedy (@arcdrag) March 28, 2021
