Chicago Map Society: "A Night at the Movies"

Chicago Map Society Meeting

Please join us for our holiday party, with extended refreshments, popcorn, and several cartographic shorts. The first short film, entitled “Caught Mapping,” was produced by the State Highways Association in 1940 and shows how road maps were drawn, field-checked and printed at the time. We will also view footage from the 1923 mapping survey of the Grand Canyon conducted by the United States Geological Survey and led by C.H. Birdseye. It is the earliest film produced by the USGS.
