Description

The National Atlas of Brazil is a collection of maps and geographic analyses aimed at interested citizens. It describes, in details, the natural, economic and social conditions of Brazil with maps in a logical and balanced structure and with relatively uniform cartographic features in defined scales. As one of most important symbols of geographers’ work, the Atlas is both a historic and a geographic document.

The first publication was released by the IBGE in 1959, and it was called Atlas of Brazil. In 1966, a new edition named National Atlas of Brazil presented updated data on some of its pages. The National Atlas of Brazil 2010 version incorporated the name of the geographer Milton Santos to its own title in accordance with Law no. 11.159 of August 2th, 2005. In 2016, the IBGE  first made available the digital version of the Atlas with annual updates.
