Pulling from its vast resources, National Geographic Concise Atlas of the World provides up-to-date, thoroughly indexed, political and physical continental maps, as well as new world thematic maps covering the structure of earth, tectonics, climate, oceans, population, religion, energy, and economy.

Informative, intriguing, and incredibly easy to use, this volume is the ultimate geographic reference for every home and office.

National Geographic Concise Atlas of the World visually portrays the important aspects and issues of the current world in an appealing arrangement. Each continent-and the United States-is mapped with political boundaries and corresponds to a comprehensive place-name index of more than 10,000 towns, cities, and countries across the globe. Likewise, full-color physical maps enhance and enrich readers' understanding of the Earth's natural features, such as mountain ranges, lakes, plains, deserts, and rivers. Country profiles provide flags and valuable facts for all 192 independent nations of the world. Key information is provided about time zones, metric conversions, and geographic terms.
