You’ll use Google Street View to race around a sprint course.
Desktop computer or laptop.
Google Street View provides interactive panoramas of streets from all around the world, allowing you to travel along the street as if you were really there. If you haven’t used it much before, we recommend trying it out before attempting the stage.
We are using a game developed by French orienteer Simon which you should test in the warm up game to get used to it.
- read the instructions on the game website and do some of the warm up course!
- to move in Street View click where you want to go. You don’t always need to click an arrow to move.
You will be ranked on time.
You can try a warm up using the same game website here (or choose another course in top right corner in this link). Though we don’t recommend doing it all as you’ll be tired for the real competition 😉
Ready to compete?
- To make it a fair competition, you must only do the stage once – your first go is the one that counts!
The course is around small city in the northern part of Argentina. Surrounding this city are traces of human habitation that date back more than 10,000 years, making it one of the oldest continuously inhabited settlements in Argentina.
