Geoguesser is a simple web game that tests, amongst other things, your knowledge of the world’s landscapes. The player is dropped on a random road within google’s street view and is tasked with identifying where in the world they are. The leaps between environments are pretty intriguing.

It’s surprising what you might find you know about places in the world you’ve never been, and equally how you can be duped by a few misplaced cues (the German flag outside a bakery in Sweden for instance…)

As far as I can tell you can navigate around indefinitely searching for an enlightening street sign or iconic landmark, but this just takes the fun out..
