How well do you know the world?

Think you’re a geography expert?
Test your knowledge with BBC Travel’s Geoguessr – the game that proves how well you know the world!

A snapshot of the game
First, move around using your mouse and figure out where you are. Then click on the map in the lower right hand corner to place your marker (zoom in to increase your accuracy). When you’re sure, click the “make a guess” button, and find out how close you were! Once you’ve mastered the basics, set a time limit or challenge a friend. The world’s a huge place – get exploring!

The game is based on Google Maps\Street View and it is really a challenge to play.

I scored 9,783 on the first round. What is yours? Let me know your score with a comment.

Hint; The following clues will help you get higher scores
- Road Signs
- Driving Directions
- Language
- Geography of the location


Note: The game is supported in IE9, Firefox and Chrome. IE8 and earlier is not supported.
