Cataloging Atlases

I'm wondering, now that Atlases is a genre term (as it should be) what will the subject headings for world atlases be? Earth $vAtlases maybe?

I also just noticed the difference between topographic maps and physical maps. The later do not include any vegetation or man-made structures. Many maps with topographic in the title should get the genre term Physical maps.
