The City Map Quiz

How well do you know your city street grids? Before settling down to a new week at work you should take a few minutes to enjoy the Washington Post's Street Map Quiz.

The post has created a number of maps showing only city streets and no other features. Your task in the quiz is to try and name each city map from only the pattern of its roads. Some of the city maps are easier than others. However, even if you don't recognize a map, you still have a chance of picking the correct city from the choice of four answers.

If you like the maps in the quiz and want to create your own city street map the Washington Post has linked to Jim Vallandingham's tutorial on how to create 'street only' maps using Mapbox Studio.
