Tips for the Google Maps Guessing Game | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

"Some online quiz games are rendered pointless by Google. But here’s one that would be impossible without it: GeoGuessr, a “where in the world are you?” guessing game that drops you into a Google Street View locale from somewhere on Earth and challenges you to place your location on a map.


Those who have tried it can attest to its addictive qualities—and the head-smacking frustration that ensues when you confidently drop your pin on the plains of Texas only to find out you were actually looking at a scene from Alberta, Canada, some 2,000 miles to the north. Or when you congratulate yourself for instantly identifying a quintessential Dutch town square—that turns out to be a Dutch theme park in Nagasaki, Japan."
