GeoGuessr - Get Lost

www.geoguessr.com

The premise is simple: you are randomly dropped somewhere on the earth, and you have to use Google street view to figure out where you are.

I found this on Reddit and thought there would be plenty of people here who would enjoy it. It's surprisingly fun and addictive.

What's your high score? Mine's 14,235.

Those are some pretty good scores. I just played it again and got this Japanese island that was around 1000 km southeast of the main islands. I'm glad I didn't spend 15 minutes on it because I never would've figured it out. It was in the general area of Iwo Jima.

The Russian ones were quite vexing, because there were a SHIT TON on landmarks, but everything was Cyrillic.

The first was a stone's throw from this



And google image search 'Kazan Russia' for a lot of unique, but totally unknown to me, nearby architecture.



The last one was in the upper right of this picture



The US ones, OTOH, were in the middle of BFE with nothing around. I went like 20 miles south to BARELY make out a reference to Rio Grande Village, first identifiable landmark. Then I went another 15 or so miles west in the other to find I-25, then had to scour I-25 for a while to find the referent intersection.

Damn. Just got 14,000. Not travelling to find road signs or landmarks is really hard.

Turns out it was just north of Springfield. Off by 80-odd miles.

Sheer coincidence.

Lest some might suspect me to be humble bragging, I was WAY off in my other forays. Put a scene from middle Canada in Louisiana, and a scene on an island off the coast of Moracco in Brazil.
I hammered Brazil twice, trouble is - it's enormous, so it's not some secret, hidden talent - or anything.

Hahahaha, yesssssss. I did it without moving around at all. http://www.geoguessr.com/?v=eyJ0b3Rh...ZSI6bnVsbH0%3D

I got 20,000 based on two LUCKY guesses in Mexico and eastern Europe, one significant clue in the Brazil location, and (best of all) a scene I actually know in downtown Jackson, MS.

I wonder what's with all the landmarks in Canada? And Japan too, really.

I understand that the geographically large countries are going to get more opportunities than others, but then I don't understand why China doesn't have a bunch of landmarks. That's a pretty shitmassive country too.

Go to Google Maps and try to enter street view in China. There's no data there at all.

(knowing what nations have Google Maps street view data and which don't is a lifesaver when it comes to this game)

I had one where I was literally out in a field. I couldn't move anywhere, except to rotate. From one perspective, you could literally see that it was a guy standing out in the middle of nowhere with a camera due to his shadow.

Sometimes you get bad luck and it puts you in some remote place that you really have no chance of getting. Other times, it's quite easy and you can track down the place you are at by name on the big map.


I got 18.2k on this one.

I had that too. It was a 360 photo of a guy standing in what looked like a snowy sports field of a high school or small college. I guessed Michigan. It was Ukraine.

The last one was - Standing in front a big marquee for the Say When Casino. Marked me as 3M as is meters from the correct spot.

I had one that was the interior of a parking garage with snow on the ground. No readable signs. Couldn't go anywhere, just turn around.

Turns out it was located in northern Kazakhstan. Like I was going to guess that.
