Topological Map of the USA Quiz

A topological map is a type of diagram that has been simplified so that only vital information, such as borders, remains and unnecessary detail, such as size and shape, has been removed. Fill in this map of the contiguous United States by correctly guessing each highlighted state.
Michigan is represented as a single polygon, to avoid confusion.
Lake Michigan is included as the shaded rectangle.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! I used a program called Inkscape to make the map and then uploaded it to JetPunk. There are a number of helpful posts describing the process of making an SVG map if you look them up. Also, if you liked this quiz, make sure to check out my World version of the quiz.

Any map with Florida being an inconsequential little blip in the corner is a great map by me!

What practical use do these maps serve? Other than fun quizzes, why would someone use such a map?
