Our society


The North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS) invites you to join an organization of specialists in the field of geographic information. Founded in 1980, NACIS has grown into a vibrant society with membership throughout North America and the world. NACIS welcomes new members from traditional as well as emerging professions that define geographic information science today.

Become a Member

The first step in getting involved with NACIS is to become a member. NACIS members get discounts on our Annual Meeting and the Atlas of Design and membership dues support our many initiatives


NACIS runs almost entirely on volunteer activity, and we’re always in need of helpers for various tasks to help the Society function! Contact us if you have a specific skill set you’re keen to sharpen working with us.

Each year we elect a few new people to the board of directors for NACIS. Are you interested in serving the organization in this manner? For more information please get in touch with the [email protected].
