Now, for the first time, National Geographic offers its trusted map content in a new, compact format. Sized at 4 x 6 inches, with a pliable, resilient softcover, the National Geographic Compact Atlas of the World is designed to be thumbed through, easily referenced, and then conveniently stored in a pocket, backpack, or desk.


All maps are newly researched and updated, and reflect the latest changes in the world.

    Comments about National Geographic Compact Atlas of the World:

    It is a poor excuse for an atlas. The binding hides a large percentage of the information that is needed in a lot of cases. A spiral binding would have allowed access for this information.

    Don't be conned into buying it.

    I can get better inforamtion off my iPhone.

      This is a great little atlas. Fits in a purse or travel bag for sightseeing. Would also be good for a student since it's lightweight and compact. Book is small so the print and maps are very small.
