The SoC Bulletin is the journal of the Society of Cartographers. It contains articles of broad cartographic interest, reports on developments in desktop mapping and GIS, substantial review sections on maps, atlases and cartographic literature, and information and announcements about new publications and meetings relating to the subject. The Bulletin now attracts contributors and reviewers eminent in their own particular fields indicating the reputation gained by the Society through its Bulletin.
