WORLD ATLAS - The World HD (with Retina Maps)

Description

THE PREMIER IPAD ATLAS - with RETINA VECTOR MAPS

The World HD is unique in the app store because it includes both a complete set of country maps AND the largest world fact book. These enable it to answer questions which Atlases and fact books cannot: Atlases show you where countries are located, but have very little information about them; fact books tell you about each country, but their maps leave you guessing about where places are located.


___________ HOW IT WORKS ___________

The interface is animated and interactive. Touch a country on the world map and the Retina vector country map opens while the factbook slides onto the screen, each topic neatly organized as tiles along the edge of the map. Touch a factbook tile and it zooms out to reveal detailed information about that topic. Not sure where a country is located? Select it on the drop-down list and The World HD zooms in on it then opens the map and factbook.

The zoomable world map is not just the fastest way to select a country it also enables you to visualize and understand entire regions. It is so intuitive and easy to explore that once you get started it's hard to stop!


___________ FEATURES ___________

RETINA VECTOR MAPS

Customer Reviews

Great Atlas

I have a U.N. World Atlas and this is a lot better.
The store bought one is about half the size of my bed. This is far more convenient. It works offline as well, and yes, this is not Google Earth, but this gives a basic layout of the world. Well worth the money.

Does the job

As good as the printed atlas sitting on my bookshelf, at far less cost and much more convenient.

No, it's not Google Earth, but it's all on my iPad.

Poor

Not crazy about this app, it only allows you to zoom into a country at a higher level and cannot zoom down to a detailed streets and roads level. Also does not allow you to put markers or pins down to mark locations....National Geographic app will do both.
