H-Maps | H-Net

H-Maps is an international digital forum in the historical study of the making, circulation, use and preservation of maps from the ancient to the contemporary period. Because of its international nature, H-Maps welcomes contributions in world languages, including (but not limited to) English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and German. H-Maps is a collaboration between the International Society for the History of the Map (ISHMap, Twitter @ishmap1) and H-Net to further substantive inquiry among a growing number of global scholars with an interest in the history of maps and mapping.

Boston Map Society – The home for map lovers in Boston and New England

The Boston Map Society is a group of map enthusiasts. It was founded in 1994 to bring together people who like to study, visit, use, collect, and preserve maps. Though most members live in the New England area, membership in the Society is open anyone, anywhere, with an interest in cartography.

Most of the meetings of the Society are held at the Boston Public Library, home of the Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center, and at the Harvard Map Collection. We also go to other locations for field trips (to libraries, museums, historical societies, preservation organizations, etc.) and to see map exhibits being held at other institutions.
