    Comments about National Geographic Family Reference Atlas of the World, 3rd Edition:

    I use this mainly to locate places, such as Mali in relation to Nyjer (correct spelling was rejected as an inappropriate word). The maps are easy to read. The index is very good.
    On page 82 the designated 2005 location for the North Magnetic Pole is wrong. Also, I would prefer that the map of the North Polar region have some lines of latitude and longitude.
