World Atlas

Welcome to the World Atlas feedback forum. Let us know what you think about the Rand McNally World Atlas!

  1. Compass rose, etc.

    Give each map a compass rose and a legend. Also, expanded drawing tools (particularly a circle and color choices) would make these maps much more flexible for teacher use. It would also be helpful if you would allow the importation of jpeg/gif images in the layers.

  2. Scaling the Download and Printing screen shot

    Being able to print particular sections of the world is difficult because I can't manually adjust the Screenshot.

  3. History Teacher Thoughts

    You need more historical maps to make this worth my while . . . e.g. railroad maps, slave routes, Missouri Compromise etc.

    It would also be nice to be able to turn on/off features like rivers, capitals

    Thanks,

    Rick

    Thanks for the feedback! We’re working on adding more history maps to the World Atlas and have many more to come over the course of the upcoming year.

    Also, if you turn on the Geography browser by clicking the slider in the top left corner, you can click on any country or state and see more information. Under each state, you can click the “Maps” link and see a bunch more historical maps there. They’re all in PDF format and are downloadable. We’ll also be moving many of these to the more “dynamic” layers soon!

    We appreciate the feedback!

  4. Measurement Tool

    Add a tool to allow students to measure distances between two points in miles and kilometers.
