How well can you figure out where in the world a location is?  Geoguesser is an online game that uses images from Google Street View to display a small section of the world.

The game challenges your geographic knowledge by having you guess the location of a street view image.  You can pan and walk through the images to try and extract clues from where you are.  Click on a location on the small inset map and click the “Make a guess” button to submit your best estimate of the image’s geographic location.  A results window then pops up showing the linear distance from your guess and the image’s actual location. The farther away your guess is from the actual location, the lower your awarded points.  A total of five images are presented during the game.


You can play the game solo or set up a challenge with your best geonerd friends.  A custom URL will be generated when you select the “challenge a friend option” where all players will be presented with the same five images to guess from.
