- America, one of five continents. America has a relatively narrow and lengthened shape; it extends over more than 16 000 km, the North of Greenland in the Cape Horn, near the Antarctic circle. It is limited by the Atlantic Ocean in the East, the Pacific Ocean on the West, the icy ocean Arctic to the North and the Southern ocean in the South. The surface is about 42 millions of km2 for a population of 750 million inhabitants. It is formed by two continents in triangular forms, North America and South America, connected by an isthmus, Central America. Term America appeared for the first time in Cosmographiae Introduction (" Introduction in the cosmography "), published in 1507 by the German cartographer Martin Waldseemüller. The name is diverted from Americus, name Latinized by the navigator Amerigo Vespucci, whose expeditions towards the New World are brought back in this work. Such as it is used by Waldseemüller, term America refers in a specific way to lands discovered by Christophe Colomb, Vespucci and the first explorers of the Antilles and the northwest rib(coast) of the continent the South. The Flemish geographer Gerardus Mercator was the first to use this term to indicate(appoint) all this continent on a card of the world published in 1538.
