Atlapedia - A nice alternative to Google Maps

Google Earth and Maps are brilliant classroom tools and you can find some great ideas for using them in the classroom here but Atlapedia is a nice alternative for geography students who wish to view traditional maps and explore countries around the world.

Atlapedia Online is a great reference for students to use by themselves, or educators to use in the classroom. It contains full color physical maps, political maps as well as key facts and statistics on countries of the world.
