Canadian-American Center map wins major award
The University of Maine Canadian-American Center map by Margaret Pearce, “Coming Home to Indigenous Place Names in Canada,” has been named co-winner in the Thematic Map category of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society’s 2017 Map Design Competition.
The society represents professional cartographers in North America, and the judges include experts from the Smithsonian, Library of Congress and National Park Service.
The other winning map in the category was National Geographic Magazine’s “The Melting of Antarctica,” available online and in the magazine.
Two years ago, “Historical Atlas of Maine” won in two categories of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society’s Map Design Competition — Best Book/Atlas and Best of Show.
