Geoguessr is an extremely popular (and addictive) chrome experiment game developed by Anton Wallén, The game was produced to demonstrate new features of Google Maps API v3, with help from Backbone.js. The game uses Google Streetview and a Google map, asking the player to choose the location of the photo. It then calculates the distance from your guess to the actual location and gives you a score based on that. The tool allows players to share their score with others or to challenge their friends to the same challenge.
