Phoenix Professional Edition Metro Area Street Atlas '09 Edition (Yellow1)
Arizona's best selling street atlas is bigger & better than ever! This atlas has maps that are more than 60% larger scale (size) than a typical street map. Larger scale maps mean larger print for anyone needing a full-detail set of maps covering the entire metropolitan area that are easier to read & easier to use. The Professional Edition is based on the Phoenix Standard Edition Metro Area Street Atlas, which is popularly referred to as the "Yellow1" for its bright yellow cover. Think of the Pro Edition as the "Big Yellow1." It has all the advantages of the standard edition with important features that no other Phoenix area street maps have: easy-to-read enlargement pages for many densely populated areas & a unique innovative set of peel-and-stick map page tabs for use in marking your most used pages so you can quickly turn to the right page.
Out of the 81 standard map pages (each covering 36 square miles) Wide World of Maps found 59 pages met the criterion of needing to be enlarged for further clarity. The pages were divided into quarters (NW, NE, SW, & SE). In some cases all 4 have enlarged pages, while others only have 1, 2, or 3. Densely populated quarter-pages are enlarged onto full pages, which then follow the original page. Because of these changes, the Pro Edition is much thicker & heavier than the standard edition.
This atlas also includes a handy foldout map showing the entire metro area & extra map pages showing the Metro Area Zip Codes, School Districts, & Freeway/Expressway System. Special maps detailing the Arizona State University campus, Sky Harbor International Airport, downtown Scottsdale, downtown Phoenix, the Phoenix Central Coridor, Maricopa County, & the state of Arizona are also included, all with updated information. As an added bonus, the atlas includes an offer for a free CD-ROM that brings all of these maps to your computer including the comprehensive street index in an easy-to-use format.
