Orientation. The easy way.

The brand new Diercke International Atlas


The Diercke International is the standard atlas for subjects taught in English such as Geography, History, Economics, Politics and Sciences as well as for plain English lessons.



The map course starts at the global level and covers all curricular topics at different scales in six regional chapters – Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, America and the Polar regions.



They all include continental overview maps on various topics, selected thematic maps for certain subcontinental regions (such as country profiles for the British Isles, Russia and its neighbours, China, India and Brazil) and rural or urban case study maps at larger scales.

In addition to introducing working with maps, the atlas focuses on topics such as migration, the global economy, digitalisation, climate change etc. Various case study maps, such as energy transformation, ecological agriculture, both in Germany, water use in Spanish coastal regions or nature conservation projects in different countries, allow the reader to relate to sustainability issues.


In addition to historical views on global and continental regions (e.g. historical maps on World War I and World War II), the topic of human rights, for example, can also be considered across the board, both in a past (e.g. French Revolution) and in a current context (e.g. children's rights, equality, flight and migration).


DIA Website


Also, it is now easier than ever before for students to find orientation both inside and with the help of the atlas. For example, the large and often used world maps – physical and political – are now located in the book covers for quick access. In addition graphical outlines of country borders are set in the margins of physical maps to illustrate proportions and facilitate comparisons. 


Detailed map texts in English can be found on the website of the atlas at www.diercke.com. They convey important background information about the maps and can be used for exam preparation as well as presentations or as a source of information for assignments.
