The Firefly Great World Atlas is a magnificent cartographic reference. The atlas provides authoritative coverage of the globe in cartography of exceptional quality. The physical and political maps, using the latest digital cartography, are fully revised and updated. They provide balanced coverage of the continents, but give extra prominence to densely populated, and economically or strategically important areas. Projections and scales have been chosen to maximize legibility and minimize distortion.

The maps (made by the acclaimed Philip's Maps) combine relief shading with layer coloured contours to give a stunning visual impression of Earth's surface, while charting physical features, settlements and communications with meticulous accuracy. The extensive index contains more than 55,000 names — provinces, towns and cities, rivers, lake and deserts. Both latitude and longitude co-ordinates and letter-figure grid references are here.

Contents feature:
  • 128 pages of physical and political maps
  • extensive 55,000-name index that includes geographical features
  • informative 48-page Introduction to World Geography
  • 32 pages of satellite images of world regions including stunning satellite imagery of 16 major cities and regions
This is an exceptionally fine atlas for the price.
