The Best Maps
Unlike other map applications, the National Geographic World Atlas HD utilizes our highest resolution, press-ready images, providing you the same rich detail, accuracy, and artistic beauty found in our award-winning wall maps and bound atlases. The app is preloaded with 3 different styles of world maps, down to country-level detail. With an internet connection, you can continue zooming through continent-level maps into detailed Microsoft Bing maps - close enough to see your home!
Browse the world as you once did in your classroom with the new interactive 3D globe. Spin, pan, rotate and switch between three different map styles including our classic (blue-ocean), executive (antique-inspired) and satellite image.
World Flags and Facts
Learn more about the world around you using the up-to-date, expertly researched Flags and Facts database which contains concise geographic and socio-economic data plus recent updates to places like Southern Sudan.
The new touch-and-hold feature makes learning about the World's nations and territories easier. Simply touch-and-hold a place on the 3D globe or any map to pop-up the location's flag-and-fact page.
