Your Comprehensive Guide to the Planet

"The world is a great, big, open space just waiting to be discovered." -Christopher Columbus

What would it be like to glide along the Nile, its electrifying beauty all around you? Or to witness the ceremonial cremation of a Buddhist monk? What products can you buy in Berlin, now that the wall is down? And what does the Earth look like from Saturn?

Just by choosing destinations, you'll embark on a picturesque, factual and musical tour where you'll explore the mysteries of our world. This unique atlas takes you simply and quickly to places on the planet both known and unknown and then takes you much further than you can imagine.

Reviews:

Multimedia World, January 1995

"One way to categorize these two titles would be reference material with an attitude. One World presents its facts from a youthfully optimistic and irreverent point of view, relying more on interpretation than fact. While this forces you to use your own filters, the content of the disc is therefore more compelling and enjoyable than it might otherwise be."

"One World compares favorably with competing atlas programs (unless you are actually trying to get around in a particular country - at that level the program's detail is lacking). The interface has a rough-hewn, parchment like quality, and it ably transmits facts and feelings about different regions of the world. You can select political or physical views and easily call up all the various superlatives. No, it's not like being there, but at least you get an idea about the area in question."
