About Concise World Atlas
The atlas of everything you need to know about our planet today.
This encyclopedic view of our planet, fully revised and updated for the 8th edition, sets new standards in cartographic excellence. Created using the latest digital techniques and satellite data, high-definition maps of the whole world are complemented by superb photographs, diagrams and topic maps.
First published in 2001, this extensive atlas is an invaluable reference for home, school, and office. The opening section is a fascinating introduction to our world with a series of maps that illustrate its physical, political, economic, and demographic geography.
The main section is a series of beautifully clear and concise maps that give a superb overview of the world’s continents. Each page contains a wealth of extra information that helps to separate this atlas from so many others, including inset maps, photographs and text to help give a real flavour of the geography and culture of a region. New information in this edition includes everything from revised country names, such as Eswatini for Swaziland, to updated country statistics and population numbers.
Linking all of this together is a fully cross-referenced index containing 80,000 place names, making Concise World Atlas a truly in-depth portrait of our planet.
