Place Spotting

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Place Spotting is a super fun map identification quiz. You’re shown an aerial/satellite photograph of a location then you have to use the map below to find where the location is in the world.

To the right of the image you’re hunting for you’ll see a list of clues to help you narrow your search down.

On the map below you can use your mouse to drag the map around, and then use the zoom in buttons in the top left to zoom in on the location. The location has to match the image exactly down to the latitude and longitude coordinates.

When you have a match the Not Solved box to the right of the map turns green and tells you what number your solution was.

This is hard! I love the challenge, but to make it easier I recommend you open up a translator some of the clues are in German, and it never hurts to Wikipedia clues to help you get in the right location.

Good luck and enjoy! I’m off to solve more maps!
