  3. Physical Map with Political Boundaries/Labels Overlay Options AND Smaller Pins

    (1) Most map studies for students require physical maps with political boundaries, but NO NAMES OR PHYSICAL FEATURE LABELS. For example, students need to be able to identify and label "Rub' al Khali" on the physical map, but they also need to have the outline of the countries' borders so that they can locate each country and label it themselves. The best way to accomplish this might be to create separate overlays: "political borders", "capital locations (pins marking the locations of capitals without the names of the capitals)", "country names", "physical feature names" overlays.

  4. Incomplete

    Why does this atlas not have a thorough set of maps? The entire middle east is missing. There is only one map for China. Why are these missing? Clearly RM has plenty of great maps they could use.

  5. Needs to be completed

    A great instructional tool. ASIA is missing based on my limited search in its world history site.

    It cannot be called a World Atlas missing a whole continent!

  6. For visually impaired learners, I would like to suggest that latitude and longitude line be black. There is not enough contrast with blue.

    Latitude and longitude lines need to be black for more contrast when the maps are being projected.

  7. Ability to control the zoom function

    It would be nice to have a more advance zoom function to allow the printing of exact areas.

    It would really make the world come to life if there were pictures of the different map locations (like Google Earth)

  9. A map for every year

    Especially in U.S. History, it would be valuable to be able to type a year in U.S. History, and see a layer of a historical map for each year.

  14. make one for truck drivers

    Could you create a program that helps new truck drivers be able to read a Atlas and trip plan. They would need to understand how the key works, legends and how to read if there are bridges, restricted roads....or do you have something like this that we could get access to?

  17. Search box ineffectivre

    It's my first time on the site. I teach ancient history and tried to search Ancient Mesopotamia and got zero results. Based on that I don't anticipate using this website.

  18. Annotate by Typing

    Can we have the ability to annotate on a map by typing instead of drawing, and the typed notes would stay visible all the time, not only by clicking on a pin?
