First-time here? Welcome! If you're happy using the standard, English version of the deck, here is how to get started:
Ultimate_Geography_v[...]_EN.apkgand download it.
You can also download the latest Anki package from the shared deck page.
The standard English deck is the only version available as an Anki package. If you'd like to use the standard deck in another language, or the extended deck in any language, first install the CrowdAnki add-on then follow the steps below.
Please note that importing an extended deck on top of a standard deck is not recommended. You should either remove the standard deck first (by following the instructions in the Major version section), or import the extended deck in a separate Anki profile.
Ultimate_Geography_v[...]_DE.zipfor the standard German deck) and download it.
If you're looking to upgrade to a newer version of the deck, this section is for you. The process differs depending on whether you're upgrading to a minor (e.g. v2.6) or a major (e.g. v3.0) version.
For more information about versioning and the differences between minor and major, please refer to the Versioning section.
For a minor version upgrade (e.g. from 2.3 to 2.6), do not import the APKG package in Anki as you may have done initially or you will lose your progress. Instead, proceed as described in the Other languages and versions section, making sure to pick the correct archive (e.g.
Ultimate_Geography_v[...]_EN.zipfor the standard English deck).
If you've moved some of the cards out of the default Ultimate Geography deck and into another deck, by default CrowdAnki will move those cards back on import. This behaviour can be disabled.
Upgrading to a major version (e.g. from 2.6 to 3.0) typically leads to a loss of progress. Therefore, unless the release's page tells you otherwise, it is recommended to perform a clean import by following these steps:
Ultimate Geographynote type.
Beware that changing the structure of the deck may prevent you from upgrading it without loss of progress.
The notes are based on a note type called Ultimate Geography, which defines eight fields: Country, Country info, Capital, Capital info, Capital hint, Flag, Flag similarity and Map.
The cards are generated by Anki on import based on four templates: Country - Capital, Capital - Country, Flag - Country and Map - Country. The extended version of the deck includes two additional templates: Country - Flag and Country - Map.
The appearance of the cards is controlled solely with CSS; the content of the notes is free from HTML markup.
Every note is tagged. The tags, which are listed below by category, are prefixed with
UG::so they don't conflict with other decks. They can be used to create filtered decks for custom study.
