Seeking nominations for the Corlis Benefideo award

Every other year, NACIS recognizes imaginative cartography that takes us in to the world of the possible with the Corlis Benefideo Award. It recognizes a body of work and the perspective it brings to the field of cartography and the contributions it makes to the world as a whole. Please help us find our next honoree! We’re especially interested in seeking out people or groups working in the realm of imaginative cartography who are not yet part of our community. All nominations will be considered and appreciated. 

Freelancers: your input is needed

Did you do any amount of freelance mapping in 2021? NACIS members Aly D. Ollivierre and Daniel Huffman are conducting their annual cartographic freelancer survey. Please help empower your fellow freelancers by filling out a short survey about your rates & business practices

It’s hard to know what to charge as a freelancer. Data from this survey can lift us all up and help our community grow stronger through a better understanding of our value. To learn more, check out the results from 2020.
