The Electronic Guide to the Nations of the World

Cartopedia is an indispensable guide to the world around us. It combines the cartographic qualities of an atlas with the background information of an encyclopedia and the analytical and statistical depth of a gazetteer. Its electronic format gives you instant access to stunningly detailed maps and completely up-to-date information, and allows you to compare and contrast world statistics in an unprecedented way.

Easy to Use. Simple navigational tools give access to both maps and statistical data for every nation in the world, instantly.

The Nations of the World. Each of the world's 193 nations is surveyed in detail, including full coverage of the world's newest nations. Created by experts, this atlas places essential information about each of the world's countries directly at your fingertips.

Comprehensive Data. Key statistical facts are presented in a set of clear charts, graphs, and diagrams. Each country's politics, industry, population, medical system, defence, resources, environment, communications, crime, and economics are presented in detail. The electronic format allows you to make instant data comparisons between countries in an unprecedented way.

Detailed Mapping. The maps represent a breakthrough in design for the screen. They offer unprecedented detail and use state-of-the-art cartographic technology drawn from a unique geographical database.

Requirements:

Windows - IBM or compatible PC, 386DX/33MHz or higher microprocessor, 4Mb of RAM, MPC-compatible CD-ROM drive and sound card, mouse, SVGA 256-color display, loudspeakers or headphones, Microsoft Windows version 3.1 or later.

Reviews:

CD-ROM Today, April 1996

"The best of the trio [Cartopedia, Encarta '96 World Atlas, and Earthscapes in Time] is DK Multimedia's Cartopedia. Utilitarian by design, this title is fluid, handsomely presented, and intuitive. Ironically, while Cartopedia is my favorite of this group, it offers the least multimedia. For example, there are 500 images (photos and video clips) in all, compared with Encarta Atlas's 2,800 images and 10 minutes of video. And Cartopedia lacks nifty tricks like Earthscape's magnifying glass. Nevertheless, the program's simple structure belies its dense statistical information. You never get lost or confused.

"While each of these atlases has its good points, Cartopedia gets the nod for its genius of simplicity and its ability to present huge volumes of data in a coherent fashion. And as with CD-ROM encyclopedias, getting the information you want is the name of the game."
