About the Volume Six
Exploratory Essays Initiative
With support from the National Science Foundation from September 1999 through August 2002, the History of Cartography Project initiated work on Volume Six under the leadership of Mark Monmonier, Distinguished Professor of Geography at Syracuse University. The grant provided research stipends, with which we hoped to encourage proven or promising scholars from a wide variety of backgrounds to research the history of cartography in the twentieth century. Participants attended a planning conference in June 2000, prepared major research papers, presented their results at a symposium in March 2002, and delivered copies of their research materials to the Project. The papers were published in a special issue of Cartography and Information Science (CaGIS) Volume 29, Number 3 (July 2002) and will form a foundation for Volume Six itself.

Essays are reprinted here with the permission of each author and the
American Congress on Surveying and Mapping, which publishes CaGIS.

This material is based upon work supported by the

Geography and Regional Science and 
Science and Technology Studies Programs
of the The National Science Foundation

under Grants No. BCS 9975699 and BCS 9975705. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation (NSF).

We are also most grateful to our corporate sponsors for this special issue,
both of whom were significant players in the history of twentieth-century cartography:

Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI)

The Rand McNally Foundation
