After the file is downloaded, double-click on it to open it in the desktop program.
At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to your AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then synchronized to AnkiWeb.
I would also like an option to sort by population. I do not think this would hinder long term memorization as another commentor suggested.
I suspended all the capital cards because I'm not interested in learning those. This was easy to do because the deck is well organized!
Anyway, I want to answer one of the previous commentaries about it: The one that suggests to sort countries by population.
It is not bad idea if you want to name/recognize just the most important countries, but it can become incredible more difficult to grasp the last few thousands of cards, so if you want to complete the full journey, the difficulty will overall increase, so I think that's a must-not change.
The older version had odd filters on the flags which distorted the colours.
This newer one also has improvements in accuracy and it appears to have a few more cards and countries the other one was missing.
Very impressed - it is the most useful deck on this entire website.
Everyone should study this deck and improve their knowledge of the world
It's kinda annoying to start with some extremely small islands if you hadn't had the more important ones.
I've currently seen 2/3rds of the cards and only saw 3 countries in continental Africa, no country in continental America (north and south) and no only a few countries from Asia/Ozeania (the only big one being the Philippines) - I force-learned European countries through a custom study since I already knew almost all about those.
When I learned capital some years ago I memorised 'Mbabane' as the capital of Swaziland.
This deck says it's 'Lobamba', so I checked Wikipedia. It lists them both: Lobamba as legislative and Mbabane as executive.
You could consider adding Mbabane or just a note explaining it like with South Africa :)
Same thing with a note for Sri Lanka
Being from Denmark I couldn't help but noticed how horribly disfigured Denmark is on the map of the Baltic Sea.
It turns out that the picture is actually of the now gone 'Ancylus Lake' and therefore over 10.000 years old.
Here's a better picture of the Baltic Sea with no name, maybe it's useful:
At the end, though, I found that the one-way Map->Country and Flag-Country cards left me with a number of leech cards and closely-related cards that I couldn't keep straight. Countries with similar flags were a lot of trouble (ex. New Zealand/Australia, Curaçao/Nauru, Palestine/Sudan, Andorra/Moldova), I never quite got the relative locations of various island nations down pat, and while I could easily recognize, say, Uganda or Hungary on a map, I wouldn't be able to tell you what other countries they bordered.
The conclusion is that, to master this deck and to have a reasonably accurate world map in my head (which is the goal, no?), I really needed to also learn cards for Country->Flag and Country->Map relations too. Adding these cards to the deck forced me to verbally explain what each country's flag looks like and what countries they border.
This yields 50% more cards to study, but also dramatically improves the benefit that I get from this deck.
I also want to thank you for putting in all this work and to keep it updated and maintained.
This is the most comprehensive geography deck on AnkiWeb, by far. Thanks for putting in all this work to keep it updated and maintained.
