Wouldn't it be nice to increase the amount of 'Official Maps'? You could just add more maps, but you can also verify user-created maps who could feature in the 'Originial Maps', or even a new tab with 'Verified Maps'. Think about maps like 'Norway', 'Las Vegas', 'Africa'. You could make a feature in which the Geoguessr-Team can edit/add text to it, change title slightly, add a photo and such. It would be nice to have more Official/Verified maps and it also would motivate people to deliver new quality maps, because they might get verified, which means they will be played a lot. Just an idea, I don't know whether this is possible or not.
Thanks for the feedback! We've been thinking about something like that, and I guess the listing with "editors choice" on the start page is something in that direction.
I agree that we should highlight great maps better, there's a lot of hidden gems out there.
Thanks for the reply! Lovely to read, "editors choice" is indeed something in that direction and it would be great to see it become something bigger, more highlighted.
If you know any good candidates let me know!
Also I would suggest this map by Simi: https://geoguessr.com/maps/5ad0b0cb2a3e0d4da46cc44c That has the UNESCO sites, very interesting to play.
