The core of the atlas is brand-new maps from MapArt Canada, covering every province and territory in detail. Enhancing these maps are sidebars incorporating spectacular state-of-the-art 3-D satellite photography of each area's distinctive topography. An additional feature is downtown street maps of Canada's major centres.

Prefacing the maps is a series of eighteen double-page spreads exploring the land, climate, wildlife, resources, industries and peoples of Canada. An innovative treatment of the history and contributions of Canada's First Nations cultures appears among these spreads. Packed with up-to-date information, charts, graphs, photographs and other visuals, these pages set a new standard in revealing Canada as it is today.

The Canadian Atlas replaces an earlier Reader's Digest atlas, published in 1995, which sold 35,000 copies through the Canadian trade before going out of print in 2001.

The Canadian Atlas is a collaborative effort between a select editorial team from the staffs fo Reader's Digest Canada and Canadian Geographic magazine, drawing upon the expertise of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society's Editorial Advisory Committee. The maps were create by MAPmedia, Canada's most experience cartographic firm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and wonderful gift An excellent atlas that gives Canada the attention Canadians deserve. Great colour and detail. I wish I had this during my school years. Now it will serve me well for reference and for enjoyment as an armchair traveller, reminiscing of journeys across and throughout this magnificent land.
