The middle section is made up of 72 pages of World topographical maps, incorporating continental thematic maps on topics such as climate, population and economics, followed by 32 pages of World thematic maps. Completing the atlas is a section of World 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.The page numbering is now sequential throughout and the British Isles and World indexes are fully integrated. Philip's Modern School Atlas is an unbeatable combination of highly detailed physical mapping backed up by numerous tables and thematic maps.
