Knowledge of planet Earth has come a long way since 1768 when "Encyclopaedia Britannica" referred to California as "...a large country of the West Indies...It is uncertain whether it be a peninsula or an island". Today with the full benefits of satellite imaging, laser measurements, and other modern and accurate mapping techniques, "Encyclopaedia Britannica" is proud to bring you a comprehensive atlas of our planet. Contents include: 218 pages of mapping, with completely up to date reference maps, include detailed information at a large scale; an introductory section, The World Today, includes Geographical Comparisons, Planets, Earthquakes and Volcanoes, Climate, Vegetation, Population and Cities and Energy; the maps are organised by continent - Europe, Africa, North America, South America, Asia, Oceania and Antarctica. Each continental section of maps is introduced by a stunning satellite image. The extensive Index has over 130,000 place name entries from the reference maps. Cross referencing to alternative and former names is also possible. 32 detailed plans of the world's greatest cities are provided. It includes a glossary of geographical terms.
