CMS Partners with Rumsey Map Center at Stanford

The David Rumsey Map Center, which opened at Stanford in April 2016, houses one of the premier map collections in the country.  The California Map Society is a founding friend of the David Rumsey Map Center. The center has partnered with the California Map Society to organize and host a lecture each year and also to support a Student Paper Award. CMS will host one of their bi-annual meetings at the David Rumsey Map Center each year.  The Center also provides access to other original historical cartographic materials, presents exhibits, provides interactive tools, and supports GIS applications as part of their interdisciplinary mission. It’s a terrific place to visit on the Stanford campus in the Bing Library complex.
