Decades of geoscience field trip reports bear witness to the importance of field-based learning experiences, but most instructors can take students to only a handful of field sites in person. EarthQuiz provides a virtual geologic experience for formal and informal lifelong learning. It challenges website visitors to answer multiple-choice geoscientific quiz questions and to estimate image locations. Activities emphasize exploration, adventure, and interpretation. EarthQuiz leverages Google Street View™, Photo Spheres, GigaPans, and Google Maps™ satellite view imagery to enable crowdsourced creation, Web-based delivery, and autoscoring of interactive geoscientific exercises. Viewers are challenged to identify and locate geologic features around the globe through a series of game-like questions.
