Collins World Atlas

Author(s): Collins


The new Collins world atlases present a dynamic view of the world, bringing it to life through innovative maps, stunning images and award-winning design. They give an exciting perspective on how the world is made up, how it looks and how it works. This flagship title, first published as the Collins New World Atlas, establishes a new concept in world atlases. It is both a high quality reference atlas and a visually stunning collection of images depicting the nature of the Earth. It presents new ways of visualizing the Earth through the use of maps, satellite images, space and aerial photography, three-dimensional terrain models and graphics. The information is presented in continental sections with the mapping for each continent introduced by a series of highly illustrated thematic spreads. These include detailed statistics and flags of all countries and territories, and cover such topics as landscapes and land use, climate and weather, population, cities and specific environmental and geographical issues. Similar topics are also covered in a world section at the beginning of the book. The detailed reference mapping provides comprehensive and balanced coverage of the world in a highly innovative, dynamic and attractive style. The index contains over 80,000 place names and includes full cross-referencing and gazetteer-style entries for the world
