Collins launched its stunning new Atlas by Collins(TM) app for iPhone and iPad, allowing users to explore the world as never before through a collection of interactive 3-D globes draped in visual data. Atlas by Collins(TM) includes seven free globes with themes such as politics, energy and the environment. Users have access to more than 200,000 locations such as cities, landmarks and natural features, all of which can be discovered while offline. The app gives users the ability to change their view of the world with the swipe of a finger, to see, for example, which countries consume the most oil or have the high rate of Internet use. Each globe can be viewed from space to street level using pinch and scroll functionality. Taking advantage of the latest Apple technology, this groundbreaking app is optimized for the new iPad, iPhone 5 and iOS6. It has been created by Collins Geo, the award-winning cartographic team behind The Times Atlas of the World, in partnership with the Other Media, developers of the bestselling Wonders of the Universe app. Atlas by Collins(TM) -- designed to help students, teachers, journalists, parents, travelers and anyone else who wants to put their world in context -- allows users to simply "Atlas it" to find the information they seek. The following themed globes are available with the launch of Atlas by Collins(TM): Satellite map: A clear satellite image of the Earth from space down to street level; Physical maps: 3-D maps display physical features such as oceans, mountains and deserts; Political maps: Current states and territories, political and economic alliances, and historical maps showing the effects of exploration, colonialism and conflict; Environment: The impact of human life on the natural world, and how countries compare on environmental issues such as pollution and forest loss; Population: Statistics about the people who inhabit the world, including population trends, migration, and birth and death rates; Communications: How technology connects the world, including mobile coverage, Internet usage and number of telephone lines; Energy: The distribution of energy resources, and patterns in energy production and consumption.
