Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The new edition of the Oxford Atlas of the World is a splendid achievement in geographical reference. The 176 pages of full-color, computer-generated maps reflect all of the most recent geopolitical changes in detailed and dramatic terrain modeling, with a dedicated page of maps featuring current world hot spots. A special city map section with its own 8000-entry index covers 67 major international metropolitan areas with 38 close-up maps of city centers; more than 70 world and regional thematic maps with illustrations and text explore topics from demographics and economics to the environment. The general index features 75,000 entries with full geographic coordinates. An "Images of Earth" section presents 17 stunning, full-page satellite photos, and a 32-page gazetteer section provides ready-reference information arranged alphabetically with data boxes, country summaries, and official flags, including East Timor and the latest designs for Afghanistan, Comoros, and Rwanda. This superior reference is an extraordinary value and is highly recommended for all reference collections. The handsome new edition of the Hammond World Atlas competes directly with the Oxford Atlas: the two share size, price, and format, but the former lacks the gazetteer and separate city maps. Major metropolitan areas appear mostly as insets in regional maps, rather than in their own section with detailing of city centers. Hammond's text and maps are completely up-to-date, and there is a richly illustrated 64-page "Thematic Section," a 48-page "Satellite Section" with color photos and commentary, and 181 pages of full-color physical and political maps representing the world, continents, and regions with state-of-the-art, detailed, computer-generated terrain modeling. The index features 110,000 entries, and the alphabetically arranged Quick Reference Guide" provides basic geographical statistics and, when applicable, capitals for continents, countries, states, provinces, and territories. The high quality of the cartography and the up-to-the-minute material make this atlas an excellent geographical reference resource, recommended for most libraries. However, the gazetteer and city maps section give the Oxford Atlas the overall edge.-Edward K. Werner, St. Lucie Cty. Lib. Syst., Ft. Pierce, FL Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
The latest child of Hammond's Digital Cartographic Database features beautifully tinted and shaded maps digitalized from satellite images. The introductory section includes a brief discussion of the history of cartography, describes how computer-generated maps are made and Hammond's unique projection system, and provides concise information on climate, geology, energy resources, environment, and population. In addition to 160 country and regional maps, 60 inset maps show major cities and surrounding areas. Each continent section opens with a satellite image and a political map, and each page includes a tiny locator map showing which part of a continent the map depicts. Oversize: 11x14<">. Annotation c.

    Posted July 31, 2003

    statistical accuracy ??

    Finally,an atlas with copyright date 2003 to replace my 1989 Rand Mc.Nally.The world will finally have to recognize Toronto for the metropolis we are.The maps are generous and show us in all our glory.The legends indicate 2million+ populatian with the metropolitan 4mill+ highlighted in glorious red.We finally have arrived on the world stage. And then you spoil everything in your list of 'Population of Countries and Major Cities',where we are relegated back to the status of a provincial backwater of 654thousand ,hewers of wood and drawers of water.To compound the insult you then consign the rest of the old Metropolitan Toronto Cities,East York,Etobicoke,North York,Scarborough and York to the dust bin of history,leaving the world to wonder what could have happened to the missing 1.6mill population. We are very touchy on the subject of our global village. Please pass this minor critique on to Mr.Hammond
