The Library of Congress "Surveying and Mapping" exhibit, sponsored by the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM) and the Cartography and Geographic Information Society (CaGIS) will be unveiled at its Geography and Map Division on the basement level of the Madison building in the afternoon on Tuesday, September 13, 2005. This exhibit features winning entries from the ACSM-CaGIS Map Design Competition over its 34 year history. It also features winning surveying and plat map entries from the National Society of Professional Surveyors Map Competition.

The Madison building is located at the Southeast corner of 1st St. and Independence Ave., SE, Washington, DC. 1st Street SE lies on the east side of the Capitol building, and separates the Capitol from the Supreme Court building and the Library of Congress building (old ornate building).

ACSM will hold a reception on Tuesday, September 13 immediately after the unveiling. The location for the reception is still being negotiated, but will be nearby to the Madison building. The public will be able to begin viewing the exhibit at start-of-business on the morning of Wednesday, September 14.

Thanks to all who have expressed interest in the exhibit, and especially to those who donated so it could happen, including among others, National Geographic Society, National Geodetic Survey, ESRI and POB Magazine. If you wish to donate funds for the reception please contact Curt Sumner at curtis.sumner@acsm.net.
