The only world atlas updated annually, guaranteeing that users will find the most current geographic information, Oxford's Atlas of the World is the most authoritative atlas on the market. Full of crisp, clear cartography of urban areas and virtually uninhabited landscapes around the globe,the Atlas is filled with maps of cities and regions at carefully selected scales that give a striking view of the Earth's surface.Opening with world statistics and a colorful, instructive 48-page Introduction to World Geography - beautifully illustrated with tables and graphs - this acclaimed resource provides details on numerous topics of geographic significance, such as climate change, food and water supply, biodiversity,energy, global conflict, and landforms. The popular satellite image section has been refreshed with stunning new images, while all country descriptions have been updated to reflect the latest developments around the world.Existing maps now depict dozens of new features and additions to the landscape, such as the Santa Maria volcano in Guatemala and a major new container port in Brazil, while new inset maps of Hainan province in China and the United Arab Emirates (coloured for political boundaries) offer expandedcoverage of these regions as compared to previous editions.Providing the finest global coverage available, the Atlas of the World is not only the best-selling volume of its size and price, but also the benchmark by which all other atlases are measured.
