If you have trouble getting your kids to learn their geography or you just want to test your knowledge, World of Where may be of interest to you. The program is extremely easy to use. Once you launch it, a world map appears and you can choose which continent you want to be quizzed on. Good to know however, the trial version only lets you navigate to Europe.

There are three types of quizzes: cities, countries and flags. You have no time limit and can skip a question if you don't know the answer. And if you're feeling really smart, you can decide to take on the world and have questions coming from any continent. World of Where seems particularly directed for US users as it can also quiz you on American States. Try it out and see how much you know about geography.

Changes

  • Universal Binary!
  • Added Cantons of Switzerland
  • Added contextual menu on country and city names
  • Updated flag of the Republic of Congo

The principal feature of World of Where is the test in which your geographical knowledge is quizzed. When clicking test you will be greeted with a map swept clean of words and prompted to complete a geographical knowledge quiz; a very effective way of learning your geographical knowledge.

Skipping a country or capital city whilst testing will reveal the country's position, highlighted in clear red; very useful for identifying which countries you need to review in order to improve your knowledge. After testing a few times, you will be amazed at how your geographical knowledge has increased. It's fun, educational and beware, slightly addictive.

World of Where features fully integrated testing on each of the following continents:

  • North America
  • Central America
  • South America
  • Europe
  • Africa
  • The Middle East
  • Asia
  • Oceania
  • The Solar System

And the States or Provinces of:

  • The United States
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • France
  • Italy
