This primary world atlas provides an introduction to mapping of the UK, Europe and all major regions of the world. It includes information on map reading skills, the meaning of scale and measuring distances.
The reference maps are informative, politically coloured, and easy to read with national capitals and major cities easily identifiable. The maps 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 colouring 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.
