Author's Description

Map.IQ_Europe uses your mobile phone's screen to test your knowledge of European geography.  Playing this fun quiz also tutors you with the geography knowledge necessary to help improve your score when playing the popular online 'Traveler IQ' game.  Most phones manufactured in the last few years can be used (any screen size of 128x128 pixels or larger), and detailed maps are automatically scaled for higher-resolution displays.

Because of limited size of mobile phone display screens, 'Europe' has been divided into eight smaller map segments.  Using a pull-down menu, first select one of these map segments ('North-West Europe', 'North-East Europe', 'West-Central Europe', 'East-Central Europe', 'South-West Europe', 'South-East Europe', 'West Mediterranean', or 'East Mediterranean').  After the detailed map is loaded for that map segment, it will be displayed along with six randomly-selected marker-choices, and you are asked to identify a named region or location that corresponds to one of the colored-square markers on the map.  Each marker represents another choice of the same type of item being asked -- 'Orange' squares represent Regions (such as Countries, States, Provinces, bodies of water, etc.) and 'Magenta' squares represent specific Locations (such as Cities, Towns, National Parks, etc.).

To specify the correct answer, simply press your mobile's '1', '2', '3', '4', '5', or '6' Key to indicate the correct marker number.  [Wrong answers earn zero points, and quicker responses earn higher points than slow responses.]

After pressing a numeric key, the correct answer for that question will be shown and its marker highlighted with a green outline box.  Wrong answers (or the lack of a timely response) will earn zero points for that particular question.  After answering all ten randomly selected questions that comprise a quiz, your total quiz score will be displayed, as well as the Highest Score earned so far on your mobile device for quizes on that particular map segment.  Because of the extensive use of random numbers to select both questions and the marker identifiers, each quiz will be a unique test of your geography knowledge for the selected map segment.  By repeatedly taking the tests, you will improve your geographic knowledge -- and your Highest Score!

A similar fun geography quiz exists for 'North America', and others are currently under development for 'Asia (and Oceania)', 'Central & South America', and 'Africa', so check back regularly for more challenges.
