World's largest atlas
Abu Dhabi - Arabstoday
The National Centre for Documentation and Research (NCDR), has received the maiden copy of Earth Platinum, the largest world atlas of which the Australian publishers Millennium House has printed 31 copies only.
Dr Abdulla El Reyes, Director General of the NCDR, during a press conference on Tuesday hailed the kind support and directives of Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs and Chairman of NCDR to promote scientific research through receiving this maiden copy which is unique in its size, rich in content and limited in its edition.
Earth Platinum is indeed a rare publication that would attract researchers and scholars, especially those specialised in geography, he added.
