My colleague Brian was looking to find some make-your-own map game/activity/quiz today. We know that QuizStar allows users to upload images so we were thinking that would be an option, but we found UMapper’s GeoDart Game. Introduced in 2009, Users select a map from Bing, Google, OpenStreetMap, CloudMade, or Yahoo and then create an interactive map game which will become an embeddable flash game. By the end of the day, Brain was well on his way to making a map game of Southeast Asia. I was a little surprised that there weren’t more quality “map game generators” out there, or at least easily identified, but GeoDart is looking like it has great promise.
