The Gyula Pauer Center for Cartography & GIS at the University of Kentucky lies within the “realm” of the geography department. Therefore, we satisfy the department’s cartographic needs whether it be an individual map for a faculty member’s journal article submission or hundreds of graphics for a geography textbook or atlas. Our scope is very broad based as is our clientele. We support the cartographic needs of all university departments, some state agencies, as well as private individuals and organizations in the community. We produce, primarily, thematic maps for our clients, but have been known to produce an occasional reference map (e.g. map of Lexington and environs, UK campus map). During our more than thirty years of mapmaking we have made thousands of maps for a diverse clientele.
