UK Map

Map Of UK has recently been released by Kuma in a rather bigger than usual package - more along the lines of Vic software packaging.

Aimed mainly at the educational market, this program produces a large map of the UK, a tour of which may be obtained by pressing the right keys. It is also possible to instruct the computer to search for a particlar place. Fortunately, it does hold a reasonable number of places but for some reason country names have been omitted. There is also an in-built game in which you are in a balloon, floating over the British Isles - quite an interesting diversion.

This is a useful educational package which I would recommend for the classroom.
