TerraAtlas is a collection of atlases of high quality aerial photography that features selected venues from the American landscape.

The first title in this collection to be released is TerraAtlas--Central Washington, DC, an aerial photographic atlas of the administrative, historical, intellectual, and emotional heart of our nation's capital and the adjoining part of Arlington County, Virginia. Among the architectural landmarks and other special places featured in this atlas are the major buildings of the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the federal government; the National Mall and the museums of the Smithsonian Institution; Washington's administrative, financial, and commercial districts; Rock Creek Park and the National Zoo; the Potomac and Anacostia rivers and their bordering waterfronts; Arlington National Cemetery; most embassies of other nations; historic Georgetown; and numerous residential neighborhoods scattered throughout the covered area. Vividly depicted in this atlas are the impressive patterns of content, function, color, and texture that characterize the dynamic and varied urban landscape of Washington and Arlington, an area that has been unified at one level by its more than two centuries of tenure as our national capital, and at another by the parklike veneer of vegetation that makes this one of America's greener urban areas.
