Also included are a set of ocean-floor maps, and charts of the Moon and the night sky.Philip's distinctive cartographic style, combining layer-coloured contours with hill-shading, gives an exceptionally vivid depiction of landforms.A unique feature is the World Cities section, providing more than 130 metropolitan maps and city-centre plans for 89 major cities around the globe: vital information both for long-distance travellers and readers interested in current affairs. The substantial index of 122,000 entries includes geographical features such as mountains, rivers and deserts, and historical placenames such as Troy and Persepolis; it also provides full latitude and longitude co-ordinates. With it is an informative Geographical Glossary, explaining the meanings of some of the placenames on the maps.Supplied in a protective slipcase, The Royal Geographical Society Atlas of the World is the ideal gift or self-purchase world atlas for armchair travellers and globetrotters alike.
