Think you know where the countries we name are in the world. We’ll give you two to four options to decide between — because we’re generous that way.

Quiz WriterJake

Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.

Did you know?

Cartography is the science of making maps to systemize our world.

The Canadian Cartographic Association sees the map-making process as “a unique mixture of science, art, and technology

calls for a variety of in-depth knowledge and skills on the part of the cartographer.” After all, the map maker must gather, evaluate and process source data to draw and reproduce the final map. Plus, the cartographer is challenged by the dynamic nature of the discipline. Borders change, waters rise, erosion happens, forests are leveled, and wars are fought for land ownership — there is an endless list of reasons a map might change. At the same time, cartographers are asked to map land use, property ownership, roads, resource management, waterways, borders, using techniques both old and new to gather data and plot the information found.

Cartography today employs geodesy (a science determining shape and size), surveying, photogrammetry (measurements with light), remote sensing, geographic information systems, global positioning systems, math, statistics and even virtual reality to do their job — and you thought this quiz was difficult!
