2009 Collins Fold Out Atlas Britain Summary
A revolutionary new road atlas of Britain with large pages folded into a more portable sized product. The atlas has detailed road maps, a selection of urban maps of major cities and a wide range of town centre plans. A brand new style of atlas for 2009 - it's bigger on the inside than the outside - a bit like Dr Who's Tardis. The atlas is divided into clear, easy to use colour coded sections to help you find the scale best suited to your requirements. The neat, easy to handle, portable format is ideal for use in the car and easy to store on the bookshelf. Despite the compact size of the atlas each mapping page folds out to reveal a large area of mapping at a scale of 3.2 miles to 1 inch. The handy spiral binding means that the atlas lies flat and can be folded back on itself for ease of use. The atlas includes: / Route planning section including maps for long distance route planning, motorway services information and a handy distance calculator chart. / Easy to use, clear road maps at a scale of 3.2 miles to 1 inch (1:200,000) for England, Wales and Southern Scotland and 5 miles (1:316,800) in Northern Scotland./ 20 urban area approach maps at 1 mile to 1 inch which clearly show the best routes through and into the busiest built-up-areas. o 64 street maps focussed on town centres showing places of interest, car park locations and one-way streets. o Fully updated fixed speed camera sites with the roads covered by average-speed cameras clearly highlighted. o Locations of alternative fuel sites (LPG, Biodiesel, Bioethanol, Natural Gas and Electricty recharging points) as supplied by the Energy Saving Trust. o Map showing the risk rating of Britain's major roads, courtesy of the Road Safety Foundation. o World Heritage Sites located with contact details and brief descriptions. o Over 30 categories of places of interest including castles, theme parks, sports venues, universities, mountain bike trails and surfing beaches. o The top 1000 most visited places of interest are indexed with full postcodes to aid integration with satnav systems. An ideal purchase for those who want a handy compact sized atlas without compromising on the map detail.
