Description

This is another in Hammond's new line of computer-generated atlases, the first and largest of which was published as the Hammond Atlas of the World. The core set of nearly 50 physical-political maps in this new smaller version, the majority double page, is arranged by continent. The set of maps for each continent is preceded by a one-page political map of the continent accompanied on the facing page by four thematic maps (topography, population distribution, land use, and mineral resources).

I purchased the Anchor Atlas of World History at the same time, which in a quick flip-through looks like a much more complete and fascinating coverage of history through map storytelling, with more interesting content, and includes deep detail in narrative, but also needs a scanning electron microscope to read (. " x 7". At least two people have rated this work as "one star" with no explanation. Perhaps that was bitterness from bad memories of school. In any case, this atlas is more than competent for the high school student or casual reader: it is concise, colorful, comprehensive, and free of any obvious errors.

Hammond was one of the first to commercially release a printed world atlas generated from digital databases. With the second edition of their Atlas of the World in 1998, they have released an impressive overview of our world at the end of the twentieth century. The coloring of the reference maps is one of the best I've seen so far, and includes shaded relief supplemented by layer coloring to indicate surface height. Most relief shading makes reference maps less legible, but here, the maps remain highly legible throughout. The reference maps provide a well-balanced coverage of the world with attention to the more populous areas on all continents. Since its origination is the U.S., there is a slight emphasis on North America, but not as much as often seen in other U.S.-originated world atlases. The index gazetteer contains some 102,000 names which is competitive for world atlases of this size. The thematic section is not large but does cover some of the most important thematic topics on our world. A few minor points are the lack of many important roads, and the combination of shaded relief and river courses: sometimes rivers seem to run right over various mountaintops. Also, coastlines are not always accurate enough, and especially in Asia, plates remain rather empty compared to its competitors. Still, these minor points do not spoil the fun at all, and this remains one of the best choices if you're looking for a good world atlas.

I like very much to read maps. And this Atlas has stamina for it! The printing quality is excelent and the fine detail in the images is enjoyable. This atlas is an excellent reference source for families, executives, or travelers.
The CD ROM included is a fantastic journey around the world though the PC. Is far easy to search any reference and go there on screen. The infomation is exact and easy to find and there is so much of it that you allways find something new in it.
Why nor five stars? The binding makes the maps hard to read in the binding boundaries.
