"National Geographic's new and improved World Atlas puts our best maps in the palm of your hand.

With a network 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 interactive 3D globe. Spin, pan, rotate, and switch between three different map styles including our classic (blue-ocean), executive (antique-inspired) and satellite image.
