Every four years, the US National Committee (USNC) for the International Cartographic Association (ICA) publishes the US National Report. The report summarizes cartography and geographic information science (GIScience) activities in the nation during the previous four years across all sectors, including academia, industry, and government.

This year’s report includes a one-page editorial by USNC chair Aileen Buckley, an open-access peer-reviewed article published in CaGIS by Keith Clarke, J. Michael Johnson, and Tim Trainor, and a comprehensive online report by multiple authors and edited by Aileen Buckley.

Thanks to these authors and the many contributors to the report!
