Pretty hard to see the difference between Belize City and Belmopan even when clicking on the map. I guess there might be a few pixels.

At the time of making this map, I did not know how to make "zoomable-circles". Perhaps I should fix this.

Nice quiz, but - probably nitpicking - it would have been better to include well-known Reykjavik instead of Nuuk.

But Iceland is not considered part of North America; it's in Europe. Nuuk is on Greenland.

I gives Atlanta when you type Memphis. That must be a mistake...

I think @Jiaozira was being generous, but looking at that dot, it's clearly Atlanta, so I removed Memphis as an acceptable type-in.

hm... so there is more than one city in Belize. Who knew?

Also, yeah, Santiago should probably be accepted. and maybe even Belize for Belize City. I would have actually gotten it in that case as I was randomly typing in things.

There are even more than just one: http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/149667/belize-cities-by-map

Fun fact: Belize city was actually the former capital of Belize(British Honduras as it was known back then) until a hurricane hit the coastal city in 1961. The government moved it to Belmopan after the event. More here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belize_City

Was reading an article about how some countries have changed their capitals to other places. Learned that, and that Brazil's former capital was Rio de Janeiro up until 1960, I think.

Belize history is under appreciated. Was reading a bit about it (for when I go back this April), and it has a history not at all similar to any other country. And you're right, Brasilia did become capital in 1960 by the way, (it wasn't even a place before then, if I'm not mistaken).

That is correct. Brasília was created by the Brazilian president at the time, Juscelino Kubitscheck.

Nuuk isn't in North America. It is the capital of Greenland which is part of the Kingdom of Denmark

It is actually in North America, even though it belongs to an european country. On the other hand, I think that Honolulu shoudn't be here.

While it technically can be considered an Oceanian city, Hawaii, (therefore including Honolulu), is a full American state, so therefore I believe it is justified to include it, (as noted in the caveat above).

Saint Paul for Minneapolis, Jefferson City for Saint Louis, San Jose for San Francisco, Springfield for Saint Louis, San Jose del Cabo for Cabo San Lucas, Lapaz for Cabo San Lucas... but you forgot to accept "^NORTHAMERICANCITY" for every single one!

for dummies: way too many type-ins accepted! This quiz is far off from testing whether people can identify North American cities if it accepts ones that are within the ballpark.
