Providing an introduction to mapping of all major regions of the world, this atlas includes information on map reading skills, the meaning of scale, and measuring distances. The reference maps are easy to read with national capitals and major cities easily identifiable, and are supported with national flags and basic national statistics. Continental maps are linked to the regional mapping and are supported by a selection of satellite, aerial, and terrestrial photographs. Continental relief maps show layer coloring, and major physical features are highlighted. The index uses a simple grid reference system and a selection of web addresses is included to help with further study. A full range of interactive flip charts to support this atlas are available as downloadable files. These charts are easy to use and allow teachers and learners to further develop atlas skills.
