The Da Vinci Code - Quest Solution (18 of 24)

Today's challenge proved to be a difficult one for many. After the multi-multi-part solution, you were able to complete the quest and move on to the next puzzle. Here is a screenshot of the final solution (the fourth blade is at the very top of the puzzle, you can see I have circled it with a red line).


After compiling the pieces of the puzzle you are asked "Leonardo's reverse-handwriting manuscript on perpetual motion wheels can be found in this city. What is its name?(For another clue, Hyde in the north.)" The answer is London.

After finding the blades (see image above) you are asked, "You have found all four blades, and lo! they draw an X over a place just slightly north of the Victoria and Albert Museum, home of Leonardo's Codex Forster. What is its name?" Imperial College

The first GoogleFact reader to answer today's challenge was Ming Su, congratulations Ming.

Now I will make two predictions. First, I won't be the quickest to finish today's challenge. Second, in the near future Google will annouce that they will have a new service http://magazines.google.com. Those are my predictions for this, the 4th day of May, in the year 2000 and 6.

Post your solution to today's Geography challenge in the comments below this post.

how did you all get london?

There aren't a whole lot of cities to guess. I am thinking the last geography puzzle should involve New York. Also if you zoom in to the google maps for Uk maps.google.co.uk and search "Victoria and Albert Museum london". you will immediately see Imperial College London.

Sarah, there was also a tip about Hyde Park, which is the largest park in London

did anyone get it by solving the word puzzle?

Sarahm, I didn't use Google maps... Only google search.

Question:

Everything was predictable until I had to identify a building north of the Victoria & Albert Museum. Since I don't know London, how can I use Google or Google Maps to identify the building marked on the map as the Imperial College?

A little more:

. . . I see how to find cultural institutions in an unfamiliar city on Google Earth using layers. Is that how one does it?

North of the V&A is HYDE PARK! Imperial College is to the west. And the codex is located in the V&A! Not in imperial college london. Krash - you should know that (I also go there). www.gimperial.com - i explain it a bit better there

i hate geograpgy challenges, i had to search a lot in this one but found the answers. :)

pretty easy. couldn't get the "north of A&V musuem." went to the maps and zoomed in...viola!

got it and yep so did you all ...

Tips for those of you who want to use Google search instead of Google maps:
+ search V&A Museum: its location is Cromwell Road
+ what's on Cromwell Road? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cromwell_Road note the order of listing :)

I got london immediatly from the Hyde reference, but I couldn't for the life of me work out where these blades where hidden. I didn't realise they had stuck four Blade symbols onto the image!

Imperial college was pretty easy to get using google maps, and it was mentioned in the books too, wasn't it?

Lets see what they have for us in New York.

 
At 5/05/2006 8:15 AM, Blogger Artemiy said...

Second time New York? Guess not... The last must be Paris, I think...

Yea, I got london pretty easily by the word puzzle, but the imperial college gave me some problems. At first I thought it was saying the item was north of that building, but I swear it was actually in the building it told us. Then I re-read it and went to google maps, but still had a bit of a problem because I didn't zoom in enough. Finally, it worked :p
