THE NYSTROM DESK ATLASAn atlas for advanced students


This sophisticated reference and teaching tool enables students to visualize the world's lands and peoples, compare continents, and understand environmental, economic, and cultural issues through thematic maps. Sections addressing the world and its continents each include three full-sized, shaded-relief reference maps—political relief, land cover, and sculptural relief (elevation)—plus regional maps, thematic maps (climate, precipitation, land use, population, energy resources, and region-specific issues), cross-section elevation profiles, infographics (such as climographs, population growth, ethnic composition, and balance of trade), captioned photographs, and "Issues Today" articles. Additional features: tables of world facts, a glossary, two indexes (of places and themes), and articles on "Understanding Map Projections" and "How to Use This Atlas." 8½"x 11". 240 pages. Fifth Edition. ©2018.
