US National Report

Submission Guidelines

Every four years, the US National Committee (USNC) for the International Cartographic Association (ICA) publishes the US National Report to summarize cartographic and GIScience activities in the country during the previous four years across all sectors, including academia, industry, government, and others. The report is provided to all members of the ICA, and by extension, its member nations, including the US cartographic and GIScience community.

The 2019 US National Report has two parts— an online report and a single peer-reviewed article by Clarke, Johnson, and Trainor (accompanied by an introductory editorial by Buckley) in Cartography and Geographic Information Science.
