    Nope, a projection like this one (mercator) helps for poleward countries. Because they appear bigger than they really are, therefore if you click far from the city on the map, you'll still end up closer than if you clicked that far on a projection with smaller poleward countries, or with countries near the equator on the projection used in the test.

    True, Mercator projections make more poleward countries appear bigger which means you can get away with less precise mouse clicks.

    But your ACCURACY has to be much better, and if you're trying to pinpoint a landlocked city like Edmonton on a huge, distorted Mercator projection of Canada you're screwed.

    Yep, that's true, the two probably balance each other out.

I just threw the flag down around the middle and hoped I wasn't too far away to get any points.

    (Turns out Geraldton is on the west coast, north of Perth)


    The projection of the map doesn't help either. Canada was far, far too big. Even I was 700 km off Edmonton.
    But I got Hobart on level 12 and Geraldton on about level 10. Hobart is so much easier. Makes no sense.

    Also weird, Bouvet island that is apparently part of Norway but its somewhere 2000km south of South Africa!

    traveller IQ is around 80?

    I don't know I've never really been anywhere so it shows.

    Level 5. Bah, that timer makes me nervous! And the screen was too small. I picked my freaking hometown on the map but couldn't get the pointer right so I got it as close as possible and it was still too off. The best I got was guessing Glascow at 75 km off.

    My geography is horrible. And I actually have travelled internationally. And was a member of 'Model United Nations' all four years in highschool. And I had enough classes by senior year of college to have a concentration in 'international government' in poli sci.

    Soooooo...I dunno who to blame. So I'll blame you. It's all your fault I can't find Timbuktu on the map!!! I hope you feel good about yourself.
