Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
This includes maps of almost every country, as well as more than 200 thematic maps. The country maps show major cities, borders, the names of bordering states or countries, major rivers and roads, a north indicator, and a scale of miles and kilometers. The thematic maps display economic, demographic, political, and climatological information. Some drawbacks: the maps vary a great deal in their level of detail. Also, because scale is never given as a representative fraction (e.g., 1: 2,500,000), it's difficult to compare maps. As the small, 5,000-entry index implies, this set is of minimal value as a reference atlas.
