Do You Have Basic Map Skills?

About This Quiz

"Which way did he go, George? Which way did he go?" Does that sound like you, or are you ready to run this map all over town? When it comes to reading maps, do all roads lead to your destination? Or do you get sidetracked by some unknown signs?

Reading a map is not just about the signs. It's also about the measurements. Depending on where you are in the United States, some people might refer to distance in well... distance, while others will tell you in time! "Excuse me, could you tell me where the post office is?" One person in New York might tell you, "It's three blocks away," while another person in Boston might say, "It's  five minutes down the road!" In other places, you're in such a remote area that you can't always guarantee there will be a person to ask, and your phone might not have any reception.

Ultimately there's no substitute for a physical map, and that means it's time to see how good your basic maps skills really are! This quiz will test whether they will  lead you home or leave you stranded on the side of the road, hoping to hitch a ride! Good luck and Godspeed!
