The House-Hunting Game (screenshots and commentary) is for 2 to 4 players looking for a shared house. They learn GIS concepts while using tools to create factor-combining maps to enable them to find a suitable location to live. The game was programmed with Toolbook and C.

GeographyCAL was installed at most UK universities under campus licenses as Toolbook files running on Windows XP. A conference paper by the project Directors explains its pedagogy. A modified version for the 'A' Level Geography market was published by Springer. I developed 8 of the 17 modules, including Meteorology & Air Quality (screenshots) and these other modules: Biogeography and Ecology, Regional Economic Change, Social Survey Design, Quaternary Environmental Change, and Geographical Information Systems (with case studies on Water Utilities, Retail location, Crop yields).
