Fans of the National Geographic will be familiar with its fantastic foldout maps -- ace for Geography O'Levels! For over 100 years these maps have covered everything from medieval England to the entire lunar surface of the moon. They are now available as National Geographic Maps, an eight CD-ROM collection distributed by Mindscape.

The quality of the maps is reflected in the fact that each one took up to a year to produce and involved a minimum of 25 cartographers. The CD-ROMs also include multimedia tours ranging from Peoples of the Past and War in the Twentieth Century, to Europe Through the Ages.

Available now for £59.99.

There's a patronisingly simple Nuggets competition going on at the mo. Click here to win an Airboard or a Stinger... Don't say we're not good to you!
