Info & Instructions | System Requirements | Table of Contents | Ordering 

GeoQuest: World is Houghton Mifflin Company's CD-ROM, with 30 interactive maps for World Civilization. The maps are intended to introduce you to or reacquaint you with the basics of World history and geography. Together, the maps cover the period from the ancient world of Mesopotamia to modern-day Palestine, Israel, and the Middle East, and they make excellent supplements to all of our World Civilization textbooks.

The interactive maps are divided into four categories: Answer-Question, Quest, Transparency, and Timeline. (See the "Info and Instructions" section for details.) Three of these four kinds of interactivity are represented by the four samples listed below.

Map 12: Mesoamerican Civilization, 1000 BCE-1519 CE

Map 19: The Atlantic Economy, ca. 1750

Map 22: Japan, 1800-1920

Map 27: World War II in the Pacific
