World Atlas by National Geographic

World Atlas by National Geographic

 

Description

Designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod touch, National Geographic's new and improved World Atlas puts our best maps in the palm of your hand.

:: What Others are Saying ::

"Sure, most smart phones will let you see maps of where you are and where you are going. But what if you want to also study maps of the world, of continents, of countries, in only a way that you can with an atlas? National Geographic World Atlas helps you do just that." - Wired Geek Dad

"The high-resolution imagery used to render those maps are the same as those found in Nat Geo's wall maps and printed atlases, giving you the best looking and most comprehensive maps in the world, right in your pocket." - The Adventure Blog

"Talk about a no-brainer! When you are sitting on one of the best and most beloved collections of maps in the world, it almost seems a sin not to bring them to a mobile platform where they can be of such use and fun." - MIN Online

:: The Best Maps ::

Unlike other map applications, the National Geographic World Atlas utilizes our highest resolution, press-ready images, providing you the same rich detail, accuracy, and artistic beauty found in our award-winning wall maps and bound atlases. The app is preloaded with 3 different styles of world maps, down to country-level detail. With an internet connection, you can continue zooming through continent-level maps into detailed Microsoft Bing maps - close enough to see your home!

Browse the world as you once did in your classroom with the new interactive 3D globe. Spin, pan, rotate and switch between three different map styles including our classic (blue-ocean), executive (antique-inspired) and satellite image.

:: World Flags and Facts ::

Learn more about the world around you using the up-to-date, expertly researched Flags and Facts database which contains concise geographic and socio-economic data plus recent updates to places like Southern Sudan.

The new touch-and-hold feature makes learning about the Worldís nations and territories easier. Simply touch-and-hold a place on the 3D globe or any map to pop-up the locationís flag-and-fact page.

:: Search and Bookmark ::

Bookmark your favorite places with push pins and notes. Center the map to your current position. Find places by name using the built-in index of major world cities or the full online search of nearly 7 million places.

More Maps!

:
Even with the upgrade, the only maps included are maps of the world and the continents. Regional and country maps should be available as in-app purchases, and also thematic maps such as the ones for Shakespeare's Britain, the Lands of the Bible, the Civil War and the Destination City Maps.

4/5 stars

Awesome Atlas

:
Once you've completed the "in app" download of the higher resolution versions of the maps - about 90 MBs total per full map version (Classic or Executive) this becomes an outstanding "stand alone" i.e. "no Internet required" atlas/map of the ENTIRE world. Once you've zoomed past the greatest zoom point of the "on board" map (which is stored directly on your iPhone), it transitions seamlessly to Bing maps whose information is stored ONLlINE. At this point you WILL be using the data plan of your device. Currently there is no way to turn this feature off so as not to incur said data charges. You can keep track of which map you're using by keeping an eye on the little map selector at the bottom of the screen. "Road" and "Satellite" are online maps supplied by Bing.
