Other themes include railway and river journeys and ocean cruises, historic sites, festivals and theme parks. "World Cities" offers detailed and indexed maps of 67 cities around the globe, including all the major capitals, plus an illustrated 100-entry "City Gazetteer" giving concise touring information and recommendations for day-trips. The mapping sections of the atlas are all given in full relief with digital cartography.They combine hill shading with layer-coloured contours to give a visual impression of the landscape, and chart geological features, towns and transport routes.This is all supported by an alpha-numeric index of 55,000 names which includes geographical sites, as well as provinces, towns and cities.show more
