University of Wisconsin-Madison: 40-year map project, History of Cartography, draws to a close
University of Wisconsin-Madison: 40-year map project, History of Cartography, draws to a close. “The History of Cartography series brings together cutting-edge research and a colorful collection of stories and histories told through maps. As a research, editorial and publishing venture, the project is drawing international attention to the history of maps and mapping. It treats all maps — from prehistory through the 20th century — as cultural, technical and intellectual artifacts. With millions of words of rich content that includes extensive notes, plus thousands of illustrations, be forewarned: You don’t want to print it out on your home printer.” You can buy printed volumes but all completed volumes are also available to explore online.
