Oh. My. God. How long did this take to make? And how did you get all the dots on there?

level 71
Nov 11, 2016
dots from here -> http://www.jetpunk.com/tools/place-dots had to place them on world map but I then 'zoomed in' to europe I have an Excel file city population and coordinates. took a while to calculate all distances to larger cities as data was big but now creating whatever quiz is quite simple. I can send you the excel file if you like

Do I put the coordinates on the link you put or when I'm making a quiz?
+2

Nov 12, 2016
not too easy to explain - you put the coordinates on the link I put, then creat the svg file and save it. this is the file you then add to the quiz
+2

It doesn't work
+2
level 71
Nov 15, 2016
which part does not work? 1. copy places with coordinates (3 columns) 2. paste them on the link I put 3. create .svg file (using the button) 4. save the .svg file 5. in the new quiz, add the .svg as a map

Amazing. This is a really challenging game and it's great fun. But it's made even harder by not allowing "Geneva" or "Gothenburg" as answers - at least I couldn't get them to register until I tried Geneve etc. Not sure how many others there might be like that?

thanks for spotting those - there's probably many more! I've added those type-ins

Great quiz. But "Orkney" and "Shetland"? I typed in Lerwick and Kirkwall like mad, thinking about what city could possibly be bigger there. That's very misleading.

Had to google "Viipuri" or "Viaborg" in English. (Those are the Finnish and Swedish names for the town, it used to be Finnish before WWII.) And it wouldn't accept "Aarhus". The danes use "Aa" interchangably for "Å", so if you drop the circle, then you should add an A.

Very cool idea! But might I point out that "The Ruhr" is not *A* city, but an agglomeration consisting of 12 cities bigger than 100000 inhabitants each and a whole lot of smaller ones? The city that should show up there would be Köln (or Cologne) ...

Please, accept also Kryvyi Rih and Mykolaiv. It seems that you took an exception of the rule for the latinization of Ukrainian letters like й and ï and generalized it. Those two letters are both latinized as i, EXCEPT when they're in first position of a word, where they are indeed latinized as respectivly y and yi. Otherwise, you did a fantastic job on that quiz.

Thanks for replying! I'll review the rest of Ukrainian and Belarussian cities included into your quiz, and drop a list of their romanized names according to the national transliteration system of both countries if it helps ;)

More spellings:
Lugansk (Russian for Luhansk)
Khmelnitsky (Russian), Khmelnytskyi (alternative Ukr. spelling)
Grodno (Russian for Hrodna)
Vitsebsk (Bielorussian for Vitebsk, and IMO it should be the main answer as all other cities are in Bielorussian)
Shupashkar (Chuvash for Cheboksary :-)
