It contains articles of broad cartographic interest, reports on developments in desktop mapping and GIS, substantial review sections on maps, atlases and cartographic literature, and information and announcements about new publications and meetings relating to the subject. The Bulletin now attracts contributors and reviewers eminent in their own particular fields indicating the reputation gained by the Society through its Bulletin.

The Bulletin archive - digital Abstracts and Articles

We will shortly be introducing a document which can be searched by article title, author, year and volume to help members access the wealth of information stored in the Bulletin archive.

In the meantime, abstracts for Bulletin articles can be viewed by following the links to each volume below. A new feature for our members is the option to download full articles from past Bulletins by visiting the abstracts then following the link to the full article. Alternatively members can visit the 'members only' page and making a selection from the links there. These areas are password protected and the necessary information will be supplied by the Society - if you are a member and have not received this information contact the Membership Secretary. To find out more information about joining the Society visit the Membership page.
