Harper-Collins launches interactive atlas app
Harper-Collins has launched its Atlas by Collins iOS app, which enables users to view a collection of interactive 3D globes, each displaying visual data themed around a particular topic, such as politics, energy, or the environment.
Each globe can be zoomed in and out of, from space down to ground level, using pinch gestures.
“Atlas by Collins was designed to revolutionise how people find information about the world around them," said Sheena Barclay, managing director of Collins Geo, a division at HarperCollins. "For the first time, the Apple platform provides the processing power and functionality to enable us to bring a world-class Atlas app to people all over the planet. Through this app, Apple device owners can now see the world in context and keep up-to-date with it as it evolves.”
