Quality Coverage

Political Geography Now (PolGeoNow) chronicles changes to the world's countries, borders, and capitals, as well as territorial control in conflict zones and disputed territories. Every article features informative, easy-to-read maps and concise summaries of the latest news. The site is intended to be a high-value resource for professionals and scholars as well as teachers and regular people interested in geography and world politics.

We strive hard to stay strictly politically neutral, reporting only what is, and never taking a position on what should be. In a world with plenty of other sources for political analysis and policy recommendations, PolGeoNow's content is designed not to favor or condemn any country, group, political party, or ideology - but we never censor the facts, even if some parties may find them inconvenient.

PolGeoNow is widely praised for its top-quality, regularly updated original maps, which use data compiled from a range of news media and academic sources.
