Maps of the World: Thematic Map Edition

Heibonsha Cartographic Publishing Co., Ltd.

A new kind of map where statistical and environmental data such as on climate, agriculture, resources, and energy can be freely combined with world maps.

Thematic maps are maps designed to deepen understanding about a particular theme. The Maps of the World: Thematic Map Edition can naturally create the usual thematic maps seen in textbooks, but it is easy to take particular data from the thematic map and combine it freely with other different or new statistical and environmental data. Students themselves are easily able to create new thematic maps without using the complicated geographical information system (GIS).

For instance, data on one particular religion can be taken from a thematic map on religions and superimposed the distribution of crops and livestock to discover the relations between the religion and agriculture, which can lead to new insights.

The Map Library, published by Heibonsha Cartographic Publishing Co., Ltd., assists students in deepening their understanding of geography, and encourages discoveries and insights by always providing the latest data.

* Maps of the World: Thematic Map Edition uses the Leaflet library to display map data.
