The atlas has been developed specifically for schools in the Middle East. It has been designed to stimulate and inspire students with its syllabus specific content. The maps give in-depth coverage of the region and its issues. Topics included in the atlas help pupils to understand the relationship between the social and physical environment, the regions's challenges, its socio-economic development and inter-relationships with neighbouring regions and the wider world. The mapping is accompanied by facts, diagrams, graphs cross sections, and statistics at country, regional, continental and global level.
