How do I study geography?

Asked by Zone36 (416points) March 10th, 2011

There are SPECIFIC cities I have to study for a test. I want to input the cities (if possible applicable information as well) so they appear on a map.

Are there any programs or websites that could do this?
If possible I’d like a quiz option as well.

What cities are you looking for? This site has quizzes for major world cities, but does not have a lot of smaller cities within a certain area. Hopefully it’s of some help to you.

Sorry. That won’t cut it. I’m looking to input very specific cities. It’s really not specifically about the location of the city, but what is there as well.

I just thought it would be easier for me to remember if I could view the locations from west to east. I could kind of remember them in ‘order’ on the map.

Approach it from the perspective of planning a vacation. Imagine that you have won a one-way ticket around the world, and have to visit x cities and send back 10 postcards from each city you visit. Each postcard is worth a $10,000 bonus at the end. How will you plan your trip, and what will the postcards be of?

Try the old-fashioned way.

Sketch a map of the world on a large piece of paper. Pencil in the cities that you are studying about. Put pertinent info for each city on a post-it. Stick on map under city’s name.

Look at your map from right to left, which should be from west to east.

Hmmm not a bad ideas (Biil and gail). It’ll be one expensive trip. I have to look at 200+ cities.

@Zone36 if you’re not confident in your artistic ability, you can substitute tracing paper in @gailcalled‘s post. That’s how I finally learned my way around Europe – borders, cities, roads, rivers, all in various colors of pencil.

Try google maps if you want to find cities. As long as you know the general location, like what country or continent its on, its easy to find.
