Hitting the Spot...

OK, it is now definite that I spend entirely too much time on Google Earth - I got 15 out of 16 in this thing. It's a quiz showing various landmarks from overhead, at GuessTheSpot.com - How well do you know landmarks? if you want to give it a try. My thanks to Dian Crayne for pointing out the link on the Trufen mailing list.

*** DON'T READ THIS BEFORE TAKING THE QUIZ *** MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS ***

I got 14 out of 16 ... missed Copa Cabana and Wrigley Field (my gut told me it wasn't Fenway but I picked that anyway). It isn't too hard to pick the right answer based on visual cues, e.g. the shadows from Stonehenge or the cathedral adjacent to the Leaning Tower.

I got Wrigley Field by accident - I could tell it was a baseball diamond but that was all, so I just hit return - and the radio button happened to be on the correct answer. :)

One wrong. If they use the same spots each time, I missed the baseball stadium. Knew it was a baseball park, had no idea which one.

SPOILER ALERT!
14/16, but only becuase I have no idea what Wrigley Field and Times Square look like.

13 out of 16, and most of those were guesses. Missed the last 3.

Sad, really...

I also got 14 of 16, and should have got 15, because I KNEW one of the correct answers but managed to hit the button next to it anyway.

Quite a few of mine were wild guesses [especially the baseball stadium].

OTOH, SOME of these were WAY too easy.

Some were really really obvious (eg Niagara Falls). Some took a bit of thought. Some were a process of elimination. Some were guesses.
