That being said, we do have strong evidence that Marco Polo visited many of the cities on the map. Even if the route isn't completely correct (and, indeed, many scholarly sources have slightly different routes), we know he visited these landmarks/cities, and that gives us a decent idea of where he traveled.
Overall, it's not too difficult IMO. If you want to make a quiz similar to this, I'd recommend just playing around in Inkscape because that's how I figured it out.
If you want a similar quiz that's a bit longer/more involved though, you could try this one on Ibn Battuta.
Good luck, and looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
Thanks for the nomination!
Imagine going on a road trip in late 1999 and not getting back home until today.
One criticism the lime green lines used for the East Asia portion disappear as they traverse over the blue of the sea.
I got stumped at first try because I was not able to see the line.
I think many quizzers will find it relatively easy to get 5/5, because there are frankly a lot of geography nerds on JP. That said, I challenge anyone to tell me they didn't enjoy the quiz itself. Great work.
