This world atlas is both a reference atlas and a collection of images depicting the nature of the Earth. It presents 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 which are distinctively colour-coded. The mapping for each continent is 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 atlas contains 127 pages of mapping of the world and 90 pages of highly illustrated geographical information on continental and world topics.
