Product Highlights

Columbia Gazetteer of the World

The definition of the term gazetteer, when used in a geographical sense, is a "geographical index or dictionary." The comprehensive gazetteer, such as The Columbia Gazetteer of the World, is an encyclopedia of geographical places and features. In selecting the entries, the overriding goal was to provide maximum coverage of places and features, while achieving a balanced profile of each country.

The Columbia Gazetteer of the World serves also as a unique guide to the ways in which names offer insight into the political, cultural, religious and aesthetic meanings that people ascribe to particular environments, and in which the values of places change.
