The New York Map Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, offering
educational, academic and research programs for anyone
interested in maps -- from antique maps to GIS
information system)
- based data maps.

Our members currently include scholars, librarians, collectors,
preservationists, artists, map-makers, and those who simply
love maps, both real and fictional. The Society serves as a
community-based organization, offering the public information
about -- and the ability to participate in -- map-related events.

Our meetings usually feature a guest speaker, and typically
are held on a Saturday afternoon at the New York Society for
Ethical Culture, 2 West 64th St., New York City. Meetings are
always free, open to the public, and are an opportunity to
meet, share interests and socialize with, fellow map-lovers.

The Society welcomes and appreciates suggestions and
volunteer efforts from anyone interested in maps.
