WorldAtlas has had a presence online since 1994. Over the years, the site has evolved to fill a niche on the web that aims to provide informative content surrounding the realm of geography that is both factually accurate and enjoyable to read. Through charts, tables, lists, graphs and articles, World Atlas covers topics that reach beyond geography to include sociology, demography, environment, economics, politics, and most recently, travel. This content is in addition to the amazing database of original maps that can also be found on the site. World Atlas is used as a resource for educators, students, and those who are simply curious about the world around them.

  • Providing engaging content that is both educational and enjoyable to read.
