A new edition of Britain's best-selling secondary school atlas, Philip's Modern School Atlas is divided into sections for ease of use, with each page colour-coded for rapid reference. An 11-page Remote Sensing section covers such topics as satellite imagery and GIS (with an explanation of false-colour usage), incorporating a selection of images used in studies of exploration, land reclamation, erosion, geology and pollution, with explanatory text. The next section covers the British Isles in 32 pages. With physically coloured maps, this is the most accurate mapping of the British Isles available at the chosen scales.
Accompanying the physical maps are thematic maps of the British Isles on numerous key social and economic themes. The middle section is made up of 74 pages of World topographical maps, incorporating continental thematic maps on topics such as climate, population and economics, followed by 30 pages of World thematic maps. Completing the atlas is a section of World social and economic statistics, accompanied by the index to the topographical maps in the atlas, showing letter-figure grid references as well as latitude and longitude co-ordinates.
Philip's Modern School Atlas is an unbeatable combination of highly detailed physical mapping backed up by numerous tables and thematic maps.
