Cartographic Perspectives

Cartographic Perspectives (CP) is the open access journal of the North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS) and is devoted to the study and practice of Cartography in all of its diversity. CP is published three times a year and includes peer-reviewed research on Cartography and Geovisualization (broadly defined), technical notes and tutorials on new methods, articles on library collections, reviews of books and atlases, and novel maps. All submitted articles are reviewed and returned to authors within 6-8 weeks. In the past three years, CP has an average rejection rate of 65%. All graphics included in accepted articles are published in full color, at no cost to authors.

We are pleased to announce the 2018 student paper competition with a $1350 prize for the winning entry. Any peer-reviewed manuscript accepted for publication in CP whose first author is a student is automatically eligible.
