GeoGuessr

GeoGuessr is a game that uses Google Street View. You'll get an image, and you try to guess where in the world it is. I jumped in and scored 4470 right off, which must be awful, because I guessed very wrong. Then I figured out you can zoom and turn just like any Street View scene, and improved in my second game to 7002, which is still awful. It turns out that no matter how much you zoom into a sign, it will not "enhance" like in TV crime dramas. It also helps to zoom into the world map to make your guess, because even if you know the answer, you'll be scored on how close you mark the spot. I finally busted 10K on my third try. This could be addictive. Link -via the Presurfer

Is it my birthday?!!! I loved this site! If the location was somewhere in the western U.S. I could get within a few hundred miles, even if I'd never been there, like Alberta, Canada. Also pretty good at the northern latitudes. Below the equator? Disaster! In one guess I was about 7,000 miles off. Thanks, Miss C., this is loads of fun!
