GeoQuest is Houghton Mifflin Company's CD-ROM, with 30 animated maps and 30 interactive maps for Western Civilization. The maps are intended to introduce you to or reacquaint you with the basics of Western history and geography. Together, the maps cover the period from the ancient world of Mesopotamia to post-Cold War Europe, and they correspond to three of our Western Civilization textbooks.
The interactive maps are divided into four categories: Answer-Question, Quest, Transparency, and Timeline. (See the "Info and Instructions" section for details.) These four kinds of interactivity are represented by the four samples listed below, respectively.
Ancient Egypt and The Levant
The Empire of Alexander the Great
The Barbarian Kingdoms in the Sixth Century
Europe in the Age of Reform, ca. 1500-1600
