A screenshot of the Puerto Rico map quiz

Front- and back-end functionality that creates a "given an unmarked map, do you know where this particular country / territory / state is?" game.

When a place is in the news, sometimes it's an opportunity to ask readers if they actually know where that place is on the map. This collection of Google Maps, custom javascript, and a database backend lets us build and launch new map quizzes quickly.

What I did

  • Wrote the Javascript that manages the interaction in the quiz.
  • Wrote the SQL and back-end form handler.
  • Overhauled the functionality on handheld.
