Geoguessr — Interactive Geography Game


Geoguessr is a fun interactive game that is designed to stimulate the geography sides inside people. It utilizes the services of google maps to produce images. The user is dropped in a random location somewhere in the world. There are a myriad of types of locations that one can be dropped: middle of the ocean, national monuments, sometimes even inside of caves. One must use their knowledge and inference skills to observe their surroundings and ultimately make a guess about where in the world they have been dropped.

One should attempt to make observations about both the physical geography and human geography elements that are around them. Geoguessr tests one’s geography knowledge as one looks around their surroundings; taking note of soil color, tree type, architecture, vegetation, and landscape, in order to make a guess about where one is. To be successful, the player must pick up on various clues to help make an accurate guess. This is a very engaging and educational game!!
