Major updates include Serbia and Montenegro being split into 2 independent countries, Naypyidaw—the new capital of Myanmar, the now open Golmud-Lhasa railway in Tibet, the Aral Sea continuing to shrink in size, Portugal's big new reservoir of Barragem de Alqueva, and coastal changes in China at the mouth of Huang He and at the Mouths of Ganges in Bangladesh. A large number of new road and railways have also been added and more than 300 place names changed This complete world reference atlas is in a convenient and easy-to use format, while retaining the authority, style, and detail of the larger atlases in the range.
