CMS sponsors the publication of research by our members in cartography and related fields. Members are encouraged to contact the Vice President for Publications to discuss their proposed research publication. Contact us for Standards for Submission of an Occasional Paper for publication by the Society.
Our policy effective 2011 is to publish our Occasional Papers (OPs) electronically on our public website in PDF format for reliable printing and in HTML format for optimal viewing and enhanced images whenever possible. At this time full copies of OPs are available below in PDF format except as noted. Some recent OPs or images are also available in HTML format. OP No. 5, a full book, is made available through an online copy courtesy of Stanford University.
In 2014 the Board approved a policy to offer printed compilations of Occasional Papers that had previously only been offered in electronic form. Contact us to purchase the printed versions is provided below. Life and Patron Members receive a complementary copy as a membership benefit in the year the compilations are published.
