Finding out about the world's geographical features by studying old rusty maps is one way of getting the job done, but map symbols don't give you the real clue of what geography is really about. Well, now you can see how mountain chains look like in reality by visiting Airandspace.si.edu and looking at Earth pictures taken from satellites.
The real challenge that Airandspace.si.edu brings is for you to actually recognize the particular location that you are shown in the picture. And if that wouldn't have been a big challenge in itself, you can compete with other geography enthusiasts out there by taking the online Geography From Space contest. You can even win three copies of one of the most colorful geography magazines “Earth From Space” doing that.
Visiters can also boost their geography skills by taking one of the yearly quizes that the site offers, which come with a clue to help you identify the picture and the correct answers attached to them, so that you can easily find out on what level you really are with your studies.
So studying geography just got an upgrade and became fun with Airandspace.si.edu! It is a must-visit for any geography fan or enthusiast out there.
