For Educators

The Washington Map Society feels that the love of maps and cartography starts with education in primary and secondary schools, and of course, at home. There are many fine internet resources for teachers and educators that are available about maps, geography and cartography.

We think these four organizations offer excellent materials and represent a great place to start:

The National Geographic Society 

The American Association of Geographers 

The University of Southern Maine’s Osher Map Library 

Boston Public Library’s Leventhal Map Center 

A potential source of education materials is one of the most comprehensive websites that explores many facets of cartography. It is compiled by the former Map Librarian of the British Library, Tony Campbell  Map History / History of Cartography - WWW-Virtual Library

Another excellent resource for educators is an article written for The Portolan by WMS member, Marianne McKee, Expanding a Child’s World: Map Books for Children and Young Readers.  This article can be viewed in the column on the right hand side of this page (or scroll down if you are on a mobile device.)
