A Mountainous World

I believe it is mainly a hilly terrain that makes a landscape beautiful. So this map, inspired by KillerMapper's "A Coastal World" features only places in or surrounded by mountains. Note: Balancing in progress!

All the world's borders! (Kinda)

OK, it's not all borders, only those that have Street View, so there are NO PHOTOSPHERES. I was going make a full version as well where it will truly be ALL borders, with photospheres, but some borders don't even have that. City-states are included.

Zrušené autobusové zastávky (Praha)

Zrušené a zaniklé zastávky autobusu v Praze. Někdy ještě zůstává značka, někdy je vidět pozůstatek na chodníku, někdy vůbec nic. Bus stops in Prague that are no longer in use or no longer exist.

Praha (hand-picked)

Here's my first map - it's as many locations in Prague I could think of and some more more or less randomly clicked. They tend not to be famous places, some are even on the very edge.

Wild Prague

"Is this really Prague?" These are some islands of wilderness surrounded by civilisation.

Mosty přes Vltavu / Bridges over Vltava

This can be any bridge that crosses Vltava (in the Czech republic) from its spring in Šumava (where it's a tiny stream), throug Prague, all the way to where it flows into Labe (Elbe) near Mělník.

Česko: Potraviny

Obce, co znáte ze supermarketu, ale možná nevíte kde jsou. Dáte si uzeniny, hermelín, trubičky, kuře, kozla, smetanový jogurt, uherák nebo lahůdky?

African capitals!

These are the 10 African capitals that have Google street view on them (you can use that knowledge to your benefit and think about which are more likely to allow street view. ;).

1 Country - 1 Location

1 location from EACH country where street view is available. I tried to pick locations that are at least somewhat representative. Only official coverage, no blurry pictures, no photospheres.

China has no Google Street View coverage, but these are locations from which you can see land in the Chinese territory.

Some problematic borders

Borders between countries where there's big tension and conflict. Unfortunately, most of those don't have Google coverage, these are the few that do.

The canals of Amsterdam

There are literally hundreds of water canals running through Amsterdam, here I put about 60 bridges that go over them on a map.

WW2 extermination camps

These are the horrendous death camps built by *** (um, it's censored for some reason) Germany during the holocaust in WW2. The locations are in the village or in the general area in the town (one had to be a photosphere).

Among the fjords (Lofoten)

After the Faroe Islands turned out to be relatively easy because you can see the fjord shapes pretty clearly, I thought I‘d do Lofoten (from Røstlandet in the S-W to Gimsøysand in the N-E) as well. These will probably be much, much harder, though.

Try to guess if it's in Finland (mostly the South) or in Maine, the state in the North-East US. And try it without reading any signs, please! ;)

Borders between all European countries available on Street view (some barely have street view at all and some apparently don't allow the google car to cross the border).

Banksy street art

This is all of Banksy's work I was able to find on Street View. Sadly, the vast majority has been removed or painted over with a random artless smudge.

TESTING Polygons (The World)

For testing purposes, I put the entire world into polygons. That way we can find out more about how the new map-making feature works and what sorts of locations it tends to pick. You can write your findings here: (reddit)r/geoguessr/comments/8hoy5p/

German cities (polygonal)

Germany is barely on Street View at all, but this is the few cities that are. ;) I tried to minimize the appearance of highways (as this is made with the new polygons map-making feature, NOT HAND-PICKED), but some are still there.

EU Capitals (polygonal)

"Polygonal" means it uses the new map-making feature and that means there are thousands of possible locations (so the map can be replayed a lot of times), but they are not guaranteed to be good. Also, SOME CITIES MAY APPEAR MORE THAN OTHERS.

Some less known capitals

Can you tell what European (or close to Europe) capital this is? Did you know it was a capital? Have you even heard of it? Or did you know it was a country? There are others that I think are even less known, but they are not on street view...

No Map Zooming challenge

Map made for the No Map Zooming challenge, where you can move in street view, but cannot zoom in on the map. This is a map with some better known European cities. Well, YOU CAN ZOOM IN ONCE, because it's zoomed out unnecessarily.

Praha (polygonal)

This is Prague once again, but this time NOT HAND-PICKED, but made with the new region-selecting feature. That means the locations are not guaranteed to be good or balanced, but there's a lot more of them. It works pretty well, though. :)

Aldridge (hand-picked)

This is a map I made for GeoGuessrWizard (his home town). But it should be enjoyable by others as well, of course, and I did plan to make a UK town's map anyway.

Czech republic (polygonal)

This is a polygonal map of the Czech republic (Czechia), which means it can be more or less any location, the locations are NOT HAND-PICKED, so good locations are not guaranteed, but there are a lot. I will make a hand-picked map as well later.

This time the locations are hand-picked, there are no highways, no photospheres and no "location islands". It can be cities, smaller towns or even villages (but not really tiny ones).

France without Paris

This is a polygonal (which means NOT HAND-PICKED) map of all of France, only without Paris, because otherwise Paris would be all you ever get. Unfortunately, most locations are still near Paris, but that's as good as I could get it.

(Work in progress) Based on what GeoGuessrWizard said in one of his videos: Only the parts of the world (not necessarily countries) that do not appear on the official world map very often. I tried to keep them as unique / beautiful as possible.
