Explore the Aleutian Trench, Everest in 3D
3D Atlas is the only atlas that shows the world as it actually exists: full of elevations and depressions, and dynamic over time. Thousands of satellite images have been pieced together to form a cloudless mosaic of the entire planet. Navigate through twelve 3D globes and zoom in through nine levels of detail from the top of Mt. Everest to the bottom of the Aleutian Ocean trench. Students can test their knowledge with the Around the World trivia game, and engage in dozens of multimedia exhibits. 3D Atlas is part of the family of educational titles produced by Creative Wonders, a joint venture between Capital Cities/ABC and Electronic Arts. Other titles include Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, the Eagle Eye Mysteries series and ABC's Wide World of Animals. Creative Wonders, San Mateo, CA, (800) 543-9778, www.ea.com/crwonders.html.
