The World Fact Book 2006

Friday, August 18th, 2006 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

The World Fact Book 2006

Welcome to the newly updated World Fact Book. As you may know, the fact book is updated every year to add new information or to update old information so that it is always current. What will you find inside it? Well, you’ll see maps, flags and country information.

Navigation is really simple. It’s right in front of you on the main page. There’s no fancy side menu or top menu. I’ll highlight some sections for you.

History of the World Fact Book – Here you can learn how the book got started and why. This is a pretty interesting read. You learn all about the Intelligence Cycle, World War II and much more.

Reference Maps – Here you will find awesome reference maps of the world. You can find them by region, time zone and there’s even a political map of the world.

Flags of the World – Here you can find the flags for all the countries in the world, all in alphabetical order, so they’re easy to navigate. Click the flag to see it larger. That is pretty easy, huh?!

Gallery of Covers – I actually enjoyed this section the most. It’s just a gallery of all the different covers that have been on the fact book, but I think it shows an interesting progression of history in itself. My favorite covers are for 1998/1999 and 2006. But just comparing the ones I like, you notice the current graphic trend has changed so much from back then.

I bet you are wondering what the drop down box is for? Well, if you click on it, you will see that it is a listing of countries. This is how you get to the country information. Just choose the country you want to explore. You get the map of the country, as well as, information about it.

This is a great site to bookmark for those going to school, because you might need the maps someday or the information for a report. Go on and take a small arm chair journey to a different country every once in a while!…book/index.html
