Product description Review

Wherever you want to go, someone has been there first. Desk-chair travellers and students alike will love Microsoft Encarta Interactive World Atlas 2001, which offers more detail than any other atlas yet available, plus multimedia tours of hundreds of locations world-wide. Almost 2 million place names include practically everybody's hometown; the dynamic maps let the user follow chains of association beyond simple geography. Traditionalists will approve of the flat maps outlining bioregions, political demarcations and other qualities--all printable in a wide array of styles.

Local place-name spellings, informative articles and numbers galore pepper the software with features not found in other references, but the key to Encarta's success is its optimisation of multimedia. Using images, sounds and Web links to surround the user with information, the Interactive World Atlas is both dazzling and useful. Reports are easy to complete--use the researcher tool to gather, organise and export information to Microsoft Office tools. While you might not be able to discover new lands, you can certainly explore the world we know without ever leaving home. --Rob Lightner
