Physical Maps of Asia and the United States—These maps contain place-names and physical features on the landscape such as mountain ranges, rivers, and water bodies. In addition to making the more than 17,000 updates in the eighth edition, National Geographic decided to move from coverages to ArcGIS personal geodatabases for the physical and political plates. To move from coverage to geodatabase format, National Geographic selected Esri's Professional Services Group and Esri's team member, Aerial Information Systems, Inc. To keep the content and the appearance of the physical and political plates consistent, Esri, in cooperation with National Geographic, created a geodatabase model that accommodated the information in all the plates.
To convey the updates that were necessary, National Geographic created a digital edit overlay for each plate by using Adobe Illustrator; each overlay highlighted the updates and the location of changes to features and text.
The Middle East and the Northwestern United States—These political maps contain boundaries, water bodies, roads, and other cultural features.
It was understood from the beginning that the ArcMap map documents would be converted into the Adobe Illustrator files with which National Geographic would publish the atlas. After the conversion to Illustrator, National Geographic did some additional finishing, including some final text placement adjustments, adding titles, scale bars, and some of the other information associated with page layouts. Watkins says that the index, which constitutes about one-third of the atlas, represents another significant achievement. A feature that appears on several pages in the atlas, for example, is indexed only to the best page for that feature. The Esri team completed its part of the work in less than a year (June 2003 to May 2004), and National Geographic spent several months doing the atlas finishing, given that it was solely responsible for the satellite imagery and the other plates Esri did not produce.
National Geographic wants to publish the next version of the atlas entirely with ArcGIS Desktop. With Thanksgiving around the corner—and many people thinking about the topography of their dinner tables—Geography Awareness Week could very well go unnoticed. For starters—thankfully—there is this incredible organization called National Geographic that keeps me in the loop about these things. In addition to observing Geography Awareness Week from November 17–23, National Geographic also happens to be celebrating its 125th birthday this very same week.
National Geographic Kids™ World Atlas is a really good reference guide for the globe, and it can take you to all of your Geography Awareness Week travel destinations. National Geographic Kids™ World Atlas is available in our 3rd Graders flyer and online now!


Short Bio on Author: Jamie is a Scholastic Reading Club blogger who likes to draw maps on napkins.
Os Atlas sempre me fascinaram, livros enormes carregados de mapas com tantas informacoes sobre o mundo disponiveis ali na ponta dos dedos. Ao abrirmos a app deparamo-nos com o bem conhecido globo terrestre azul, o qual pode ser rodado livremente, e fazendo o classico gesto de pinca com dois dedos no ecra podemos aumentar e diminuir o zoom, para visualizar qualquer local do planeta com maior detalhe.
Para alem desta navegacao livre sobre o mapa, e tambem possivel pesquisar o local que queremos encontrar, bastando para isso tocar na lupa onde podemos fazer uma pesquisa por texto, ou entao navegar por uma lista ordenada pelas varias nacoes do mundo e visualizar as cores das suas bandeiras.
Quando estamos a visualizar o mapa, temos disponivel uma ferramenta interessante para medir a distancia entre quaisquer dois pontos do planeta. Ao tocarmos sobre uma qualquer cidade ou pais, podemos ver numa barra do lado direito a informacao detalhada sobre estes locais, sendo possivel ficar a par de varios dados actualizados sobre a sua populacao, a economia, a hora local, o estado do tempo, e onde temos ate uma calculadora para converter a nossa moeda para a moeda desse pais. E tambem aqui que podemos adicionar esse local aos nossos pontos favoritos (ou locais visitados), aparecendo depois no mapa, para que seja mais facil encontrar posteriormente.
Para alem do mapa classico, temos tambem um mapa de papel acastanhado a fazer lembrar os antigos mapas usados para navegar os mares, e ainda dois mapas do Bing, um com a bem conhecida vista de satelite e outro com a vista das estradas. A app permite ainda que estes mapas sejam descarregados directamente para o iPad, nao sendo assim necessaria uma ligacao constante a internet, ficando disponiveis de forma offline (ideal para quem vai viajar, ou para quem nao tem sempre presente uma ligacao WiFi com internet). Seja para curiosos, estudantes ou professores, este Atlas da National Geographic esta muito bem concebido, e e obrigatorio ter instalado num iPad, que e uma app de referencia essencial.
The features and annotation were updated in a geodatabase feature class and then combined with stunning imagery. The decision to move to geodatabase format will keep National Geographic at the forefront of technology and enable it to make future updates using the most advanced techniques available. David Watkins, the lead Esri cartographer, reports that the geodatabase design was necessarily created in an iterative fashion, since additional information was rolled into the geodatabase design as it was discovered. These features were converted from ArcInfo coverages into geodatabase feature classes and then updated with the most current names and information.
To streamline the ArcMap-to-Illustrator export procedure, layering in the map documents was predefined and symbology was customized to improve the work flow. Some features have multiple names; these features are indexed on both the preferred and secondary names. In the spirit of global geography, it’s the perfect time to take up some broader perspectives on the world, kind of like an astronaut peering down at Earth from space.


Mas agora com tablets como o iPad, podemos ter um verdadeiro Atlas do Mundo na palma da mao, como e o caso deste National Geographic World Atlas da National Geographic Society, uma app que esta temporariamente gratuita na App Store e que traz consigo mapas e informacoes detalhadas das cidades e paises do nosso planeta. Basta arrastar os dois circulos que temos em baixo no ecra para qualquer local no mapa para visualizar esta informacao em tempo real.
A app permite que se activem e desactivem varias camadas no mapa, como e o caso destes locais favoritos. HD , tem hoje disponivel na AppStore mais um titulo excelente deste genero de gestao de tempo. The companion Web site to the atlas allows users to create custom views of maps, zoom into satellite globe imagery to detailed views of world landmarks, and download and print atlas updates.
Among other variables, countries change their boundaries, cities change their names, and highway construction changes the roads. Kevin Allen, the director of Map Services at National Geographic, indicates that the selection of the Esri team was based on technical experience in creating both databases and geodatabases, past performance, and cost. For example, National Geographic provided its own Illustrator fill patterns, and the map document included these fill areas as solid fill symbols in a separate layer. Although this might sound simple, implementing the entries successfully means complying with a multitude of indexing rules. This means it explores the world we live in via its mountain ranges, oceans, forests, and climates, but also through its human inhabitants and their cultures and governments. It has been such a big success in the marketplace that it is about to go into a second printing. The atlas contains a lot of really good, shareable information about the world communicated in highly visual and easily digestible ways, like illustrations, maps, and infographics. Watkins reports that generating the index was ultimately handled with the help of Esri's new PLTS software functionality that will be published in a future release of PLTS.
