Even in the era of Mapquest, one can still find a good atlas useful. These colorful, at times exotic, books still sit on the shelf in the home, not too far from the kitchen table or the desk where upcoming trips are planned. They are close at hand for locating mountain ridges where a cousin is trekking or for researching the 5-letter name of an island off western Greece. So, if there is still a role for the ink-and-paper atlas in a digital world, might a place also be found for a pathology atlas in a time of flow cytometry and gene arrays?
