Esri Story Map Treasure Hunt

Esri Story Map Treasure Hunt | MrsWunder's Blog | Scoop.it

Although these were designed specifically for GIS day during Geography Awareness Week, these 2 excellent map-based treasure hunts from ESRI are great any time of year.  The answer to the question will only pop up in you are zoomed in the the right region (SHIFT + Make a box = Zoom to area).  These links will take you to the World Cities quiz and also to the Mountains quiz.

Fun quiz, pretty easy with basic worldly knowledge. Also if you just scroll in close enough then scroll across the page it would then show up to you, which is good for learning incase you had no clue what the answer is.

This map is not a professionally produced map and that is the beauty of this website. Virtually anyone can make a 1-feature world map by simply clicking on a checklist all of the countries you want highlighted on your map. Second, open the file and add some text and a few lines to label it. This took less than 20 minutes to make with no need for any cartographic or GIS experience.
