Description

Presented By Simon Thorp and Adam Smith

Celebrating 100 years of award-winning National Geographic cartography, this exquisite new Tenth Edition of our prestigious world atlas is the essential resource you need to make sense of our fast-paced, ever changing planet.

The stunning array of political, physical, and thematic maps covers every area of the globe—including both Poles and all ocean floors—as well as the universe beyond. Compelling charts, graphs, and informational graphics make the latest geographic data clear and relevant at a glance, while dozens of colour photos draw you closer to our world’s diverse people and places and their many interconnections. Pinpoint the latest trouble spots in Africa and the Middle East.

See the Earth’s natural forces at work. Follow emerging trends in land use, human migration, communication, energy consumption, and more. Examine additional new political plates of Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, and Australia. Find expanded coverage of Africa, more details on the Mariana Trench, plus a new close-up view of the strategic Mediterranean Basin.

Venturing upward, you’ll also discover new information about Mars, our moon, and both the northern and southern night skies. The 10th Edition also includes an expanded place-name index with more than 150,000 entries, with separate undersea, Moon, and Mars features. Extensive back matter includes flags and facts for all 195 nations, geographic comparisons, world time zones, metric conversion tables, and more.
