ORGANIZATION Arbeitsgruppe für Kartengeschichte
(Working Group on the history of cartography)
PUBLICATION Annual reports
PARENT: Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Kartografie (Swiss Society for Cartography)
Member of D-A-CH
DESCRIPTION: The Working Group does not have formal terms of reference, but becomes active whenever old maps or the history of cartography are involved or brought up in any way. Informal meetings are held occasionally.

Members of the Working Group serve as editors of the journal for the history of cartography Cartographica Helvetica. (First issued in January 1990.) The well-researched texts and the excellent color reproductions led to international acclaim after only a short period of time, and the journal can proudly look back on its successful activities.
