Overview

Maps have been around in some form or other since humans first understood the need to record their physical space, and for the past hundred years, the National Geographic Society has been at the forefront of mapmaking. This fourth edition of our popular Family Reference Atlas of the World brings you the world and its marvels—through maps. Using the latest technological advances, we've compiled satellite data to create some 1,400 images—maps, diagrams, graphs, and tables, as well as National Geographic’s signature color photographs—to allow you to examine the most remote corners of the globe. In an era when political, health, climatic, and environmental crises anywhere on the globe can affect our daily lives, maps provide a time-honored way to navigate the realities we face. With this atlas, you hold a powerful yet accessible tool to understanding the interplay of global forces at work in the fast-changing but always miraculous planet that is our home.

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

Use the book for crossword puzzles and a weekly geographic quiz, as well as looking up places that are in the news. Also for Jeopardy and notify them when they are wrong.
The best improvement is the layout of Europe.
Loss of information about years countries came into existence.
Too much topo on the maps makes it difficult to find small things such as a river on a country(s) map
