Create Geogames with UMapper

Say hello to GeoDart, the first geogame powered by UMapper! GeoDart is a geography trivia game that invites users to answer geographical questions by placing answers (locations) on the map. Taking advantage of the UMapper platform you can build your own GeoDart game for any locale, with any questions and on any map! Check it out:

GeoDart rides on top of the UMapper framework for map creation and distribution. All GeoDart games can be embedded as flash widgets and tracked using the UMapper analytics engine. You can even convert your existing maps into games!

The process of creating your own game is just like creating a standard map and consists of four simple steps. Watch this video to see how to create your own game in minutes.

GeoDart Game creation steps

  1. Create a new map and give it a title and a description, then select the GeoDart Game template as the primary map usage mode. The title of your map should be the game title; instructions on how to play the game can be included in the description field.
  2. In the editor, select marker tool and ad locations. You can also add geometrical shapes such as polygons and circles.
  3. Open marker info window property and add title. The title will be used as the name of your marker, the description as the trivia question.
  4. That is it! Save and preview your game.

This is one of our most exciting releases, please help us spread the word. As always, we are eager to hear your feedback.

  3. Hi there, great stuff. I love it.

    A quick question : Can you order the sequence of the questions ? How do you do it ? (Edit “Marker Index” doesn’t work, does it ?)

    Txs,
