Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Don't know the difference between southern Georgia and former Soviet Georgia? This well-designed and easy-to-use geography program beats flipping through a dog-eared atlas or spinning a dusty globe. Amiglobe 2005 includes a wealth of details about each of the world's countries, including population figures and population density, gross national product, languages, national anthem, and flags. Country information is pulled from the latest version (2004) of the CIA World Fact Book, with additional information culled from Wikipedia (which, while a generally reliable source, should be fact checked). Country names and capitals (and other cities) are transliterated from the country's native language, which can be confusing. Multiple-choice tests give you the option of identifying a country by shape, flag, or capital. The only hiccup we encountered during testing was the program crashed when we tried to move the program window too quickly or too high on the screen. Overall, this is a useful tool that could be a boon for students or curious globetrotters.
