The mission of the Cartography Specialty Group is to encourage cartographic research and promote education in cartography and map use. To achieve this mission, we strive to:

  • facilitate the exchange of ideas and information about cartography,
  • promote interest in and correct utilization of maps and other cartographic products,
  • promote and facilitate the cartographer’s role within the geographic profession, and
  • promote and coordinate activities and directions with other professional organizations involved with cartography.

We are a specialty group of the Association of American Geographers (AAG). If you are an AAG member and are interested in joining the CSG, please visit our membership page. For further information, contact one of the current officers.
