Slick quiz using new features in Google Earth 5.2

The Encyclopedia of Life has just put out a very nice quiz using new features in Google Earth 5.2 including JavaScript in the information balloons and some use of the <Region> tag to hide information.


It’s similar to a quiz that National Geographic put out in late 2007, but the new features in Google Earth 5.2 have made it an even better experience.
You can try the quiz using this KMZ file, which can be found on the “Interactives” page on the Encyclopedia of Life website.
