We have developed an online neo-cartographic game that shows
the basic landform types of the Moon and Mars and makes the otherwise
opaque planetary toponyms more familiar to students. The main goal of
this web application is to teach planetary cartography to middle and high school students. It is based on the concept of edutainment, the method of attractive teaching and learning with the help of multimedia applications.
The game combines two parallel projects: a development dealing with mute map games in the education of geography, and research on multilingual planetary maps.
