ANZMapS promotes all aspects of cartography to a wide range of potential users. ANZMapS was created from the merger in March 2009, of the Australian Map Circle (formed 1973) and New Zealand Map Society (formed 1977). It is dedicated to exploring and developing the world of maps.

Who are we?

Our membership includes map producers, librarians and curators, publishers, designers, GIS specialists, academics, researchers, and anyone with an interest in maps. ANZMapS publishes a journal, The Globe, and holds a conference each year on different aspects of map use and mapping.
