According to Greek mythology, Atlas was a Titan of e_or_ous strength. After being defeated by the god Zeus, Atlas was f_ _c_ d to carry the earth and the sky for an eternity. In d_pic_io_s of Atlas, he is shown as a stooped f_g_re carrying the globe on his shoulders. Because of his a_ _o_ia_ion with the globe, maps began to be d_co_a_ed with this image of Atlas. Accordingly, the word “atlas” became a nickname for a collection of m_p_. Today, an atlas refers to any book that c_ns_ _ts of a bound collection of maps. For example, an atlas can be made up of maps of the c_u_t_ies of the world or of the counties of the United Kingdom. Sometimes an atlas will also c_nt_i_ graphs and charts with other statistical i_f_rma_ _on about the culture, religion, climate, or government of the population of a given area.
