Abstract "The only world atlas updated annually, guaranteeing that users will find the most current geographic information ... 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. It opens with a fascinating look at world statistics, a six-page special on 'Land and Maritime Boudaries, ' and satellite images of earth, including 8 x 10 stunning new images sourced from NASA's latest Earth Observation Satellite, Landsat 8, launched in 2013. The extraordinarily extensive front matter continues with a 'Gazetteer of Nations' that has been comprehensively checked and updated to include recent economic and political changes. The 48-page 'Introduction to World Geography' is beautifully illustrated with tables and graphs on numerous topics of geographic significance, such as climate change, world religions, employment, industry, and a new 2-page feature tourism and travel, including information on air travel and major airports, the importance of tourism to the economy, and tourist earnings and spending. The hundreds of city and world maps that form the body of the Atlas have been thoroughly updated for this 25th edition"--Publisher's description.
