The Atlas is a complementary material of education that students must always have at hand. For this reason, the atlas of the Elhuyar Foundation is designed for students of primary and secondary schools. In addition to updated geographical and political maps, it collects thematic maps and useful data for students. However, it can be very appropriate for any lover of geography.

This new atlas is completely updated. On the one hand, it includes the definition of the planets agreed by scientists in August 2006 and the new organization of the solar system, among other things, that Pluto is not planet. On the other hand, it reports the main political changes that have occurred in the world in recent years (Montenegro, Timor-Leste...) and the socioeconomic and demographic events of recent years: inhabitants of the world, countries and richest cities in the world, data of Euskal Herria... And to end the updates, Euskaltzaindia takes into account the Basque names of the Euskal Herria and the world names, as well as their rules and suggestions.
