Updated annually the Oxford atlas of the world guarantees uses the most up-to-date information. Full of crisp, clear cartography of urban areas and virtually uninhabited landscapes around the world, 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 and 18 pages of stunning satellite images, all sourced from NASA’s Landsat 8. 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 atmosphere and geology of Earth, water and food supply, climate change, energy, biodiversity, global conflict, human health, and standards of living. The hundreds of city and world maps that form the body of the Atlas have been thoroughly updated. It’s an excellent resource for travel.
