Although the importance of maps in Geography education, current eLearning systems do not take benefit from the possibilities that web maps offer. In this paper we describe an IMS QTI assessment engine enhanced with web maps from Google Maps. The system enables the user to interact with the map to answer questions, providing a more natural interface for geographic information. The concept of map interaction has been introduced to represent the different ways of processing the student actions on the map. Depending on the selected map interaction, different spatial operations are applied to validate the correctness of responses.
