Whether planning a vacation, keeping in touch with world news, solving crosswords, or just exploring the world, this completely updated atlas has all the necessary information. An amazingly detailed view of the world is provided by 260 pages of mapping, and the illustrated thematic content covers the most important geographical issues of the day. The reference mapping has been completely revised with thousands of changes reflecting recent geopolitical and geographical changes around the world. The 26 new World Heritage sites added in July 2012, such as the Landscape of Pré in Canada, Western Ghats in India, and the site of Xanadu in China, are all represented here. Other updates include the addition of Queen Elizabeth Land in Antarctica; new administrative divisions in India, Bangladesh, Chad, and Finland; the largest cities sizes based on latest UN figures; updated English place name forms for countries such as South Korea, Taiwan, and Georgia; and the realigned International Date Line around Samoa.
