Geography Databases

Our Resource Center-which offers free 24/7 access to databases containing articles from encyclopedias, magazines, newspapers and more with your valid Albuquerque/Bernalillo County library card-has a couple of great new databases, particularly if you're planning on traveling anytime soon!

A to Z Maps- is one of the world’s largest online sources for world, continent, country and state maps. In A to Z Maps you’ll have access to proprietary maps, games, images and puzzles developed by World Trade Press — plus public domain maps and images culled from hundreds of resources worldwide. Available maps include earthquake maps, climate change maps, bathymetric & fishing maps, Holy Land maps & NASA maps.
