Abstract From the Preface: The National Atlas of Korea is a collection of maps with geographic information which reflects the nature, environment, history, culture, politics, economy, science and technology of Korea. Korea is now the 11th economic power in the world and this historical publication will support the nation's advancement in the ever changing, competitive world, as well as inform the fields of geography, cartography, mapping, and geographical information science. The National Atlas of Korea will be a great educational resource for our young generations. Internationally, its wealth of information -- the physical and human environment of Korea, the designation of indigenous place names -- will inform the international society.
