Description

Philip's Great World Atlas contains accurate, authoritative mapping ideal for home and business reference. The 128 pages of the latest digital world maps provide a balanced coverage of the world, with scales and projections chosen to maximize legibility and minimize distortion over the largest regions. Each map is accompanied by a locator diagram and adjoining pages indicator. In addition, an 16-page 'Images of Earth' section shows satellite images of major geographical regions. Also featured is a beautifully illustrated 48-page 'Introduction to World Geography', with maps, charts, graphs and diagrams on key world themes, including the Universe and Solar System, geology and landforms, the environment, people, agriculture, energy and minerals. Also included is a special map highlighting key regions currently in the news, including the former Yugoslavia, the Caucasus and the Near East. The 55,000-name index comprises geographical features as well as towns and cities, with letter-figure grid references as well as latitude and longitude co-ordinates.show more
