about

The only world atlas updated annually, guaranteeing that users will find the most current geographic information, Oxford's Atlas of the World is the most authoritative atlas on the market. Full of crisp, clear cartography of urban areas and virtually uninhabited landscapes around the globe,the Atlas is filled with maps of cities and regions at carefully selected scales that give a striking view of the Earth's surface. It opens with a fascinating look at world statistics, a six-page special on "The Future of the Oceans and Seas," and satellite images of earth, including eleven stunningimages sourced from NASA's latest Earth Observation Satellite, Landsat 8, launched in 2013. The extraordinarily extensive front matter continues with a "Gazetteer of Nations" that has been comprehensively checked and updated to include recent economic and political changes, and a 48-page"Introduction to World Geography," beautifully illustrated with tables and graphs on numerous topics of geographic significance, such as the geology and atmosphere of Earth, food and water supply, biodiversity, energy, global conflict, human health, and standards of living. The hundreds of city andworld maps that form the body of the Atlas have been thoroughly updated for this 22nd edition.Providing the finest global coverage available, the Atlas of the World is not only the best-selling volume of its size and price, but also the benchmark by which all other atlases are measured.

"This is the 21st year this mammoth's been published and it keeps getting better and better. ... Flipping through this book is a lush experience, with new satellite imagery and more maps and graphs than you thought imaginable. Reading the Atlas is a little trip around the globe." --Kirkus
