This value-priced atlas is perfect for students. Reflecting the most current status of world nations, it contains 52 pages, of which are detailed, computer-generated maps. New thematic maps of each continent cover topography, population, land use and mineral resources. Each country's political boundary is clearly distinguished with a contrasting band of colour to help make this atlas easy to read. A world statistics chart includes the largest islands, principal mountains, longest rivers, major ship canals and the dimensions of the earth and solar system. This new edition has added a world reference guide with the national flag, area, and capital of each country, as well as a discussion of map projections and how computer-generated maps are created.
