The CIA - Central Intelligence Agency World Factbook
Created for government policymakers and spies, the Central Intelligence Agency World Factbook is an excellent student resource. Everything in it (expect the CIA seal) is in the public domain, so you can copy and distribute the information freely. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, each country profile includes a map and a long page of statistics. Other unique features are the gallery of flags, and the full-color continent maps in both JPG and PDF format. The World Factbook (and its two previous incarnations) has been published since 1943. It's even older than the CIA itself, which was established in 1947.

National Geographic Maps
Not just an online version of a printed atlas, National Geographic's Map Machine lets you create and save your own customized maps. A few examples of your mapping choices include Degree of Ecosystem Threats, Annual Precipitation, Recent Earthquakes or Mineral Resources. Of course, political maps (as well as flags, statistics and all the country stuff you need for school reports) are also available.

These sixty-six black-and-white printable outline maps (in Acrobat PDF) are royalty-free for classroom and homework usage. There are maps of every continent, and many counties, but the United States has the best coverage with sixteen maps including state capitals (with and without labels), state postal abbreviations, regions and climate.

Merriam-Webster Maps
A straightforward interface makes Merriam-Webster's Atlas easy to use. Simply select your country or U.S. state from one of the drop-down menus, and you'll be rewarded with a single page country (or state) profile with map, flag and a few statistics. Links to more Merriam-Webster content (such as dictionary, thesaurus, and Word Game of the Day) are found at the bottom of every page.
