7/26/2017 – Hi again – I’m looking to hopefully by the end of August begin redoing the site with a fresh look and new features, hopefully to be done sometime before the end of September. This includes a new design, appearance, scorekeeping (hopefully with live leaderboards) and more. Keep an eye out! Also I will be removing the Flash quizzes and geography quizzes that aren’t using Google Maps by then (remaking some of them after the remodel) to make the site more clean and organized.

    Sources I’ve checked show it’s 193 miles from Columbia to Atlanta, but the map seems to indicate it’s just a shade over 200.

      I can only use what the Google Maps API says is the distance…obviously minor discrepancies will exist. I’ll double check that the quiz is using routes based on shortest distance and not factoring time into the route choice.

        Wait… are you using routes to determine distance? Saying “within 200 miles” seems to indicate that you’re using an as-the-crow-flies measurement, not a travel measurement.

          oh whoops I was thinking this was a route based quiz without even looking above at what it was haha…no this is as the crow flies, so the difference is due to coordinates.

      also consider the coordinates used – the coordinates I have for a city are not likely the exact coordinates some services use when just typing in the city name and requesting directions. mine are based on Geonames coordinates, whereas different directions services may use city hall, or some other area within the city as the endpoint.
