6/26/2017 – Hello Everyone! Yes, I am alive! I have been doing full-time work not allowing me to update the site (this site takes a bit of work to keep going so I figured best to just leave it alone than do mediocre work on it) but am looking soon into new opportunities that will allow the site to expand and grow – not overnight but perhaps within a couple months. Thanks for continuing to visit and hopefully some good news will be on the way! – Darin

Directions

For each image shown in the bottom right, double-click on the location of that sight/landmark/attraction on the map. The closer you click, the more points (max 100). 50 locations chosen from 500 total. Knowing what the site is is part of the quiz – once you guess you can mouse over the red marker you made to see the name of the site – a green marker will also appear in the correct location. Special thanks to member soundscape for gathering many of the photos and location info.

    i had another version of this previously but this has many more images – so i’m redoing the whole quiz with new high scores and got rid of the last one.

    I love this sort of quiz, but each time I’ve played this, almost a quarter of the photos seem to be in the US. Are there any photos from Oceania, the Middle East, Africa (other than Egypt) or South America, or am I just unlucky?

      The US accounts for roughly 20% of all the landmarks, this being for three reasons: it’s a vast country, its landmarks are for the most part easily recognizable and the demographics of Huge Quiz. BTW, Europe has almost the double of the US. Oceania yes… a dozen or so but I’ve grabbed all the possible ones for such a small continent… I fail to see what other Oceania landmarks I could use without getting too much obscure. Africa and South America are more or less equivalent, both have around 30 each. Africa has a shortage of really good non-natural landmarks… I could have thrown some more Maghreb mosques in there but they would be too samey for the regular player. Large countries like DRC, Kenya, Botswana, Chad, Somalia, etc have nothing of especial relevance for a quiz like this. Even South Africa is not exactly a hotbed of well known landmarks. As for natural landmarks in Africa like savannas, deserts, forests… their images would be pretty generic and could be anywhere… for instance, I had the Cape of Good Hope initially but it was completely generic, it could be almost anywhere. The Sahara desert and the Amazon rainforest are missing because it would be silly to ask players to pinpoint both. In a nutshell, I’ve tried to balance the geographic criteria with general accessibility.

        Ah, actually Kenya does have one landmark but I had to dig deep. :)
