Remote Sensing Memory Game

In this interactive matching game developed by USGS and AmericaView, you’ll compare satellite images that show land cover change at various locations around the world. The goal is to find all the matching pairs of images in the shortest amount of time. When you’re finished, select any image to learn more about its location and the type of change that has occurred there. These images are drawn from USGS Earthshots cards.

How to Play: There are six versions of the game below. The 4-pair version is the easiest. The more pairs, the greater the challenge!
