Description

Fully revised for 2005-2006, Philip's Great World Atlas is a handsome, large-format volume which represents exceptionally good value either as a gift or for self-purchase.The 128 pages of up-to-date digital world maps provide a balanced coverage of the world. Scales and projections have been chosen to maximize legibility and minimize distortion over the largest regions, and each map is accompanied by a locator diagram and adjoining pages indicator for ease of use. The hill-shading on the physical maps provides an exceptionally vivid portrayal of landforms.The fact-packed 48-page 'Introduction to World Geography' provides maps, charts, graphs and diagrams on key world themes, including the Universe and Solar System, geology and landforms, the environment, population, agriculture, energy and minerals.The 16-page 'Images of Earth' section provides spectacular satellite views of 16 major cities and regions across the globe.'Regions in the News' are covered with detailed maps of global flashpoints: Iraq, Israel and the South-east Asia tsunami.The 55,000-name index includes geographical features as well as towns and cities, with both letter-figure grid references as well as latitude and longitude co-ordinates, for speed and accuracy of use.Main map scale:show more
