Some maps skills…

The Daily Mail reports today that many drivers are clueless when it comes to maps, relying increasingly on SATNAV. They have a simple quiz for people, can you guess what these symbols show? Answers in the article.


Also if you bored, have a go with this European Countries map test, very addictive. Hat-tip GeoDave.

    Newspaper are very personal, each one tends to reflect a different political perspective, the Daily Mail, tends to be Conservative, or what we call ‘Right’ of the political perspective, whereas I’m more ‘Left’ leaning, but I can’t get on with the Guardian or the Independent…
