Where in the world? A great quiz from the Atlantic.

The Atlantic just ran a fun article with a Google Earth quiz as part of it. The quiz is multiple choice, but still quite difficult. Can you identify the location of various aerial imagery from across the globe?

  1. I got 17/25.

  2. McMaster_de says:

    18 out of 25

  3. 15 / 25

  4. 23/25

  5. A good test, and tricky without north point, a scale, or zoom, and it depends on where you spend your time on GE, but managed to score better than random guesses.
    Hope Atlantic do more, and, if so, further links in GEB would be welcome.
