Mission Statement and Outreach

The Rocky Mountain Map Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and appreciation of maps, cartographic history, the history of exploration and discovery, maps as art, and other areas of cartographic interest. Public outreach by the Society to provide education in maps and history is performed by providing speakers, exhibits, and instruction to its members as well as to public schools, adult education programs, and other outside forums.

  • It has co-sponsored with the Denver Public Library an annual Antique Map Fair with lectures and dealer displays from around the world.

  • The Society is a founding member of the Council of North American Map Societies and works closely with the Geography and Map Division of the Library of Congress.

  • Recognized internationally, the Society has hosted the 2001 Annual Meeting of the Society for the History of Discoveries, the 2005 Conference of the International Map Collectors Society, the 2012 Mapping of North America: Westward Expansion Conference, all held in Denver, and the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Society for the History of Discoveries held in Golden.

  • The Society also annually sponsors and hosts a series of lectures by nationally recognized scholars on Monday evenings during Map Month May at the Denver Public Library.
