Do you know your Geography?

MAP OF THE USA! TRY THIS...This is really neat!
Wonder how a high school senior would do on this one. See how you do in placing the states of the United States of America.



All you do is look at the top of the page and
drag'n'drop the state where it belongs. Smart map, varies the order of the states' placement with each new try!



It isn't easy mostly because placing a state in the precise location when it as yet has no boundaries in place is a bit tricky! No half credit for close but over a tad...

I got a 90%, average 25 miles because RI slipped off the mouse pad and fell into Quebec on the way.

98%, with an average error of 8 miles. In all fairness, it gave me Colorado first and I messed that one up. How does one accurately place Colorado on a map without any surrounding states to line it up against?

I got 100% on my second try. I know it must be a slow day at work when I'm doing this. I think it must be time to go home.

88% 442 seconds with avg 32 mile miss...mostly because I dropped Utah too soon soon. I'll be back to try again. Oh yeah, I misplaced Iowa too far east.
