Our unique zoomable 'Europe' map atlas is now available in the languages of English [the Default], Spanish, French, German, Italian, Netherlands [Dutch], Portuguese (Europe), and Portuguese (Brazil). It generates custom real-time regional maps plus separate maps for each country and for the very large metropolitan areas. The geographical area covered in this app ranges from Greenland to Istanbul (Turkey).
If you give permission in the Privacy Settings of your device, this version will also show your current location on the maps as a pulsating blue circular marker. If you adjust the map being displayed, your current location will be automatically updated using your device's GPS location.
Easily switch between 'Road', 'Hybrid', or 'Satellite' maps, and zoom in (and out) to any detail level desired -- down to the house level! Change to a different area of focus with the drag of a finger and your display is instantly updated.
Tapping a 'Facts' Button, when shown, displays extensive relevant interactive descriptive information from Wikipedia. By following indicated links, more facts and photos are available in a specific areas of interest.
Using a new 'Settings' tab, you can select the GPS Coordinates format to be displayed on all maps, or omit it. Three different popular display formats are supported: Traditional [dddmmss.xx] , Modern [ddd.xxxxx], and Geocaching [dddmm.xxx]. As you drag or zoom on a map display, the GPS coordinates of the center of the display are automatically updated.
Tap the camera icon to quickly capture the created map image to your device's Photo Gallery. [Later you can print or share this image with others via Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, or email using the Apple-provided 'Photo' app.]
Using the 'World' tab, tap an appropriate button to launch any of the other component apps in our World Atlas series that are installed on the device.

Ratings and Reviews
Nice design and fact file, could use city search.
What I like best about this app is that some areas and levels of zoom are available offline, yes thats right, offline! As long as you've browsed that section previously with internet connection. Some city maps are available offline too! But to be on the safe side, you should still rely on Wifi. Wish I could give it a perfect 5 stars, but sadly it lacks city search. Maybe as an update in the future? The wikipedia articles are cool too (they feature only facts about countries in europe). Also, is there a way to turn off the GPS if your not using it (to save battery power)? Good first try, has room for improved features! :)
Note: Any area zoomed in on will be saved for offline access. Saved areas for offline usage take only a few megabytes of memory space, depending on the zoom level.
