Description of Content and Features

The CD contains all of the text from the 2001 edition of Operation World (both in a daily summary version and a full text version) in a Web format, along with color versions of the maps and charts from the book, statistical tables from the book, expanded statistical reports not found in the book, the huge Operation World research database (both as a complete database application and as separate database files), an Adobe Acrobat version of the complete book, the World Factbook profile information (including color map and flag) for every country, and Web links to more information on every country. A powerful search engine is included, to enable you to quickly find any desired word on the CD. And limited, but generous, permission is given to use and distribute the Operation World material for Christian ministry purposes. Read on for a graphical description of the Operation World CD-ROM.
