All Counties of the United States by Proximity

When you name a county (or equivalent) of a U.S. State, all counties within 100km will also be filled in.
Caution: the map is large in size, and with 3k+ answers, the page WILL BE SLOW
Distance here is the centre-centre distance using the latitude/longitude geographical centres provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. (This means for a big county, its borders may not get activated)

Another amazing quiz using this amazing template! I was puzzled that none of the Nevada or Arizona answers illuminated any neighbors, but then I read your instructions about your using centre-to-centre distances.

Yes, there was no reasonable way (without a lot more complex coding and modelling) to create a better proximity system. Since the Bureau releases these geographical centres, it’s all I really have to go on.

Scratch that, I've decided this won't be a sprint version. I've doubled the time to 6 minutes :)

Tippecanoe hahahah! im sure there are more funny names but didnt read them all. As someone that is proud/happy to get even more than 5 STATES, getting 2013 is not bad. I mainly typed a few states, colors, 3 presidents, some english towns and names.

Funnily enoguh, almost the enitre right side of the map has turned green and hardly anything on the left side. I like proximity quizes, but these are a bit too much to revise!!

Amazing, great, simply great. I must admit I was cheating by using an open revealed all the time since I am not from USA and I still managed 2999 on the 1st try. I hope that one day I can manage 2000 by myself. Thanks for the great quiz!

2000 was really low. I've now managed to break the 3000 point threshold, by seeing what counties are green. Time to set a 3100 threshold! Amazing Quiz!

Great idea to use proximity to make the quiz more accessible. Presidents and Native American tribes will get you pretty far. Fun to see the Percent of People with Each Score on the stats.
