The Yellow Pages -- Geography
- Geography and
Map Reading Room at The Library of Congress
- The Library of Congress delivers again -- this time with
searchable map collections spanning the years of 1544-1999.
- The CIA's World Factbook
- Perhaps the most comprehensive resource on the web. Provides a profile of each country, including information on its geography, people, government, climate and economy. Updated annually.
- Geography Network
- A great collection of maps and geographical data. World maps, satellite images, elevation data and street maps are among the most interesting and helpful resources.
- National Science
Foundation Geosciences Unidata Integrated Earth Information Server
- Graphics-heavy site with satellite, atmospheric, and weather
maps. Includes a mapping project for a consortium of participating
universities. Interactive site, linking to each of the
contributing universities and other satellite imaging servers.
- National Geographic.com
- Maps, articles and photography--a great all-around resource for anyone.
- Xpeditions features atlases, forums, lesson plans, links, and
a rather peculiar and annoying virtual "Xpedition Hall."
