Welcome to NACIS 2015 in Minneapolis! This is the annual meeting of the North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS). The theme for this year’s meeting is Mapping Interactions. See the schedule below and go to the NACIS website for more details.

The North American Cartographic Information Society, founded in 1980, is an organization comprised of specialists from private, academic, and government organizations whose common interest lies in facilitating communication in the map information community.

For those of you who were unable to attend the conference, or who couldn’t clone themselves to be at multiple talks at once, many slides are linked in the session descriptions below. Twin Cities local Kitty Hurley also put together this fantastic document summarizing much of what she saw at the meeting, so if slide decks aren’t linked, check out her notes.

Field trip to the John R. Borchert Map Library & the James Ford Bell Library at the University of Minnesota
Ryan Mattke, University of Minnesota Libraries

This field trip will highlight unique cartographic materials in both libraries. The Borchert Map Library houses an extensive collection of historical maps of Minnesota, the U.S., and Europe, as well as the Ames Library of South Asia maps, with some dating back to the late 1500s. The Bell Library contains many fascinating items, including a 1667 copy of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Willem Janszoon Blaeu, a 1507 copy of Martin Waldseemüler’s Globe Gores (the first map naming “America”), the 1602 Map of the Ten Thousand Countries of the Earth, by Matteo Ricci, portolan charts dating between 1424 and 1489, as well as works by Ptolemy, Münster, Mercator, and more.
