Well there's about 20 questions per quiz, and 196 countries. Statistically he could only make 4 more, and they would be with very obscure countries.

The colors are a little weird. I think the Landsat viewer website patches together images from different times so the colors can change depending on zoom level and other factors. Also, I've increased the brightness and contrast of every image.

Thats because that photo is the only one which shows actual imagery of the ocean. You can't see the topography of the ocean floor in normal satellite images

That's just because the ocean aren't given much importance in google earth if there aren't any islands involved (so they leave it pitch dark). If you see some images of maltese shores, you could see how crystal clear our bays are :)

What discernible features are people seeing in the first picture of the bottom row. To me that could be a heck of a lot of coastal countries. I'm intersted to see how people identify it.

Lake Titicaca for me, plus the curve of the coastline and the Andes.

for Morocco there is the strait of Gibraltar (I think that's the name but I may be mistaken, I am pretty bad with body of water), for Peru and Namibia the only way to find out is by it's shape or to just type every coastal countries in South America and Africa as those continent are the only one that have a coast similar to the image shown.

the photos are not scaled properly lake Maracaibo is nearly invisible in comparison namibia is a guess at best , very difficult overall a good test photos don't iie but can distort , i got 9 35 % my first try there is NO way that adds up unless many tests were repeated with prior knowledge of the right answers ,

What do you mean, "not scaled properly"? Are you expecting them to be to scale? If so, then I don't know why you think they should be - it would be impractical for them to be so.

It wouldn't make sense to use the same scale for every country considering the huge differences in size. And people who take these kinds of tests usually do have some prior geography knowledge.

The Venezuela one almost got me, I thought of Venezuela but didn't type it in cause I thought Venezuela would have more curve. In the end I saw Trinidad and Tobago and that's how I got it

I had to take map tests for Geography class. This was easy but I missed a couple. Yet I got East Timor (properly named Timor Leste) on the first try!! Namibia was very tough to discern though. I got that one wrong.
