Modern satellite and geographical technology has enabled the world to be researched in new and incredible detail. From measuring species diversity to monitoring land shifts, our physical and sociological world is mapped like never before. New Views includes 50 specially commissioned maps that examine our world in a beautifully visual and fascinating way. Alastair Bonnett accompanies each map with a vivid essay that provides detailed insight into how the planet has changed and what it may look like in the future. From examining new deserts and charting airspace, to revealing emerging lands and measuring each continent's natural treasures. Each map showcases an important part of our world's history, sociology and of course, geography. New Views is an exciting, insightful and beautiful exploration of our world.
