) 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

The public will be able to begin viewing the exhibit at start-of-business on the morning of Wednesday, September 14.
