Mapping without Landmarks

August 9th, 2006 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

After the previous post on Wikimapia, it was coincidence that I came across the BBC News’ “Landmarks Quiz”. Can you recognise 10 photographs of areas of the UK – but without the distinctive landmarks?

I did quite well scoring 7 out of 10 – I would have probably scored higher if: a) I didn’t stop disbelieving my score after the 5th round (perfect score up to then) and b) if I had actually seen some of the places with or without the landmarks!

How well can you do?

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
