When I went to school, we used to spend breaks standing in front of a map, trying to find places we've never been to. Since then, I guess I kind of like blind maps. They're great help for studying and they're fun as well.
That's why I made this simple project.
Try it yourself
Right now you can test your knowledge of the following parts of the world:
|Name||Guess by name URL ||Guess by feature URL ||Datasource|
|World capitals||https://www.zimmi.cz/blind-maps/world-capitals/?inverse||https://www.zimmi.cz/blind-maps/world-capitals/||Natural Earth|
 Given a name, you try to find the right feature in the map
 Given a feature (highlighted in the map), you try to fill in the right name
Feel free to use this little game whenever and wherever you feel it might be useful: at school, at home, giving a speech, whatever.
How to contribute
- Fork the repo.
- Checkout the
- I recommend copying
usafolder to the new folder (name it after the piece of the world it represents)
- In that folder, replace the
data/data.jsfile with your own GeoJSON EPSG:4326 file. Please consider simplifying the geometries, so the file is not bloated. Don't forget to prepend
let data =before the GeoJSON itself.
- You'll find a config file at
js/config.js. If you provide GeoJSON with
nameattribute (case-sensitive), no actions need to be taken. However, you can provide more than one attribute to check answers against in an array.
- Check that everything works fine.
- Update README.md.
- Send PR.
