google maps | Smarty Pins


To encourage more people to interact with Google Maps, we created Smarty Pins, a fun and interactive game that tests players’ trivia and geography knowledge.


Smarty Pins is built on the Google App Engine platform and draws on the existing Google Maps API. Using HTML5 to build the site, the game tests users' knowledge in a familiar environment.
