This is a self-contained geographic quiz based upon the map of Great Britain. The game is very straightforward and consists of questions which relate to key towns or cities, and the county to which they belong. Options are given to guess the county, the town or both. A point is plotted on the map to indicate the location of the town or city.
The central core of the program could be developed to produce either a more detailed map or as the heading suggests, the world could be plotted next!
The Picture Builder program later in this book will be found helpful to identify the points to be plotted. The map used in this program was produced by taping an outline of Great Britain onto the screen. This was on a clear acetate sheet, so it was possible to move the cursor to each point, note the x,y coordinates and then move to the next point. The result can be as detailed as the mode selected and your patience will allow.
Another way to develop this program would be to extend the data to include more or all counties and the county towns. In fact you could find that the research of the facts to put into the listing is even more educational then the program itself!
