That took some fun visualization. You might want to change the label on the 'highest point' column to 'northernmost point'.

I'm confused! Are you wanting countries which only border countries whose northernmost points are all further south than the original country's northernmost point?

Exactly! Kind of easier to visualize than write down, but maybe you can suggest me a better title/instructions?

OK I've changed the title to your suggestion, thanks - I added "by northernmost point" as I might make a similar quiz where you consider the southernmost point instead!

Cool - you may want to tidy up the text of the instructions now! By the way, I'll delete my messages about all this in the next couple of days :)

In my set of data there is also the UK-Spain at Gibraltar, which I guess may not be correct but is in my 'database'. Title suggestion - isn't the one you suggested too long? Thanks

I thought the same but at least according to Wikipedia, Honduras makes it further north thanks to some island - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_northernmost_point

The wiki page is wrong. The northern parallel border between Guatemala and Mexico is on 17°49’N, which is further north than Swan Islands of Honduras.

Thanks for spotting that! I've edited both the quiz and the wikipedia page
