Atlas of the world

English Earth is the third planet in the solar system in terms of distance from the Sun, and the fifth largest. It is also the largest of its planetary system's terrestrial planets, making it the largest solid body in the solar system, and it is the only place in the universe known to humans to support life. It is also the densest planet in the solar system. The Earth was formed around 4.57 billion years ago and its natural satellite, the Moon, was orbiting it shortly thereafter, around 4.53 billion years ago. The World is a name for the planet Earth seen from a human point of view, as a place inhabited by human beings. It is often used to mean the sum of human experience and history, or the 'human condition' in general.
français La Terre, est la troisième planète la plus rapprochée du soleil, ainsi que la plus grande des planètes telluriques, en diamètre tout comme en masse. Elle peut être nommée "la Terre", "planète Terre", "Gaïa", "le Monde" ou "Planète bleue".
español La Tierra es el tercer planeta del Sistema Solar, considerando su distancia al Sol, y el quinto de ellos según su tamaño. Es el único planeta del universo que se conoce en el que exista y se origine la vida. La Tierra se formó al mismo tiempo que el Sol y el resto del Sistema Solar, hace 4.570 millones de años.
中文 地球是太阳系中行星之一,按离太阳由近而远的次序排列为第三,它是太阳系类地行星中最大的一颗,也是现代科学目前确证惟一存在生命的行星,科学家估计地球的年龄大约有45亿7千萬年(4.57×109年),在行星形成後不久,可能曾遭受小型天體撞擊而產生一個天然卫星-月球,环中交叉十字為地球的天文符号,十字的两画分别代表子午线和赤道,另一种画法则把十字放在环形的上方(Unicode:♁)。
русский Земля́ — третья от Солнца планета Солнечной системы. Крупнейшая из планет земной группы. Является домом для миллионов биологических видов[1], включая людей. Единственное известное на данный момент планетарное тело, населённое живыми существами. Научные данные указывают на то, что Земля образовалась около 4,54 млрд лет назад, а вскоре после этого приобрела свой единственный естественный спутник — Луну.
العربية كوكب الأرض و يعرف أيضا باسم الكرة الأرضية، هو كوكب تعيش فيه كائنات حية و منها الإنسان، والكوكب الثالث بعدا عن الشمس في أكبر نظام شمسي، والجسم الكوكبي الوحيد في النظام الشمسي الذي يوجد به حياة، على الأقل المعروف إلى يومنا هذا، كوكب الأرض لَهُ قمر واحد، تشكّلَ قبل حوالي 4.5 بليون سنة مضت.
हिन्दी पृथ्वी वह ग्रह है जिस पर हम (मनुष्य) रहते हैं; यह सूर्य से तीसरा ग्रह है । इस ग्रह का एक उपग्रह है, चन्द्रमा । यह एकमात्र ग्रह है जिसपर जीवन है; हालाकि पृथ्वी से बाहर जीवन की कल्पना की गयी है । वैग्यानिकों का अनुमान है की पृथ्वी ४५० करोड़ साल पुरानी है ।
Esperanto La tero estas la tria planedo de nia sunsistemo, kaj la sola konata vivoporta planedo. La astronomia simbolo estas ♁ aŭ \oplus.

Notes and references[edit]

General remarks:

  • The WIKIMEDIA COMMONS Atlas of the World is an organized and commented collection of geographical, political and historical maps available at Wikimedia Commons. The main page is therefore the portal to maps and cartography on Wikimedia. That page contains links to entries by country, continent and by topic as well as general notes and references.
  • Every entry has an introduction section in English. If other languages are native and/or official in an entity, introductions in other languages are added in separate sections. The text of the introduction(s) is based on the content of the Wikipedia encyclopedia. For sources of the introduction see therefore the Wikipedia entries linked to. The same goes for the texts in the history sections.
  • Historical maps are included in the continent, country and dependency entries.
  • The status of various entities is disputed. See the content for the entities concerned.
  • The maps of former countries that are more or less continued by a present-day country or had a territory included in only one or two countries are included in the atlas of the present-day country. For example the Ottoman Empire can be found in the Atlas of Turkey.
