NACIS 2015 has ended
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.

Last fall Esri Press published my Connections and Content: Reflections on Networks and the History of Cartography. I recently completed the manuscript for Clock and Compass: How John Byron Plato Gave Farmers a Real Address, and have been seeking a publisher. The university press with which I had a promising conversation last fall was apparently clobbered by Covid, as were my two back-up presses active in the region. Plan B is self-publishing. I'm working on another project: a series of essays (maybe even useful for a supplementary text in a college course) on the importance and place of small-scale maps.
