Map World Map - Country Information
The world is mainly covered by oceans (79%) and only a fifth of its surface is land. The land mass is divided into continents and countries, the two biggest oceans are the Atlantic and the Pacific. Longitude and Latitude measure every location on the surface. The highest mountains reach up to 9 kilometer in the skies while the deepest trenches on the bottom of the oceans reach up to 11 kilometers. The world's population today is roughly around 7 billion and expected to grow even further. Its largest nations are China (1 billion population) and India (800 million population). The world's continents are Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia and Australia (some consider Antarctica a continent too). Continental drifts are constantly changing the surface of the earth (continents moving ever so slowly) so that today's setup of land- and water areas is not the same as a few billion years ago. However, the changes are so small (a few centimeters per year) that they don't seem visible to us.
