The app is divided into 7 geographic regions (Pacific, Mountain, Southwest, Midwest, Southeast, Mid Atlantic, and New England) with 6 categories per region (region overview, bodies of water, culture, climate, landforms and major cities). Achievements are earned by completing activities which correspond the regions to their categories (i.e., Pacific Region Bodies of Water).
