Be sure you are using the most recent version of Adobe Reader.

WonderMaps Version 1.1 Release notes:
  • Added Map Guides for MOH 1 (1st and 2nd edition) and MOH 2: WonderMaps can be used to answer all the geography questions in both MOH 1 and 2 without any other atlases or reference materials!
  • Added 13 new maps
  • Updated 59 maps with new or corrected information
  • Fixed broken links and typos
  • Fixed view settings on a few maps


Does it work on a mac (or PC)?

Yes, because it uses Adobe Reader, it works on any system without a problem. Just make sure you have the latest update to Adobe Reader (10.0 or higher), this will save any complications.

Does it cover the maps I need for The Mystery of History or All American History?

Yes it does! WonderMaps was created not only with hundreds of world maps but also a large selection of historical maps that cover everything you need for MOH 1-2* and AAH 1 – 2 (maps also cover both the 1st and 2nd Editions of MOH 1).

WonderMaps even has the MOH and AAH maps specifically set aside, so they are easy to find, print, and use. WonderMaps can take the place of any historical atlas you would use with these programs.

*The full set of maps for MOH III will be included in version 1.1, which we hope to make available this year.

Yes you can. Use the Zoom tool in the View menu to focus on the area you want. When you print your document, select the “print current view” option, and instead of printing the entire page, it will print only the area you’re focused on. This makes the number of maps you can customize nearly endless!

Can I write/type/draw on the map within the program?

At this time, WonderMaps does not support writing or drawing on the maps within the program. If you need to do mark up a map, you’ll need to do so on paper.

You’re missing a map I really want! How do I suggest map additions or corrections?

If you register your copy of WonderMaps, there’s a form you can fill out in the member’s section. Submit your form, and it will go right to the development team for their review. You get bonus points if you provide a source for any historical information you want us to add 🙂

Does WonderMaps work on an iPad?

We haven’t tested it exhaustively to say for sure, but if you have a good PDF reader and ePrinter, it should be possible to copy it over from your computer. It may not work quite right, but it’s worth a shot! Let us know what you find out if you test it.

I want to print out maps for my co-op/classroom/Sunday School/etc. Is that OK?

If you purchase a co-op or classroom license, that’s fine! You can print out maps for up to 25 students per license. Check out our Co-Op & Classroom section for more information.

    This is the best mapping software in existence. It has every map you could want for homeschool, and so many variations for printing.

    Our family loves WonderMaps! We’ve used them both for “serious” study, and the games I use with the kids to reinforce the concepts they’ve already learned. They’re also great to use in projects our co-op does for fun group learning. Love the versatility they provide!
