Apart from studies on general cartography, the volume, which reflects some co-operation with the ICA Commission on Maps and Society and the United States Geological Survey (USGS), contains regional studies on cartographic endeavours in Northern America, Brazil, and Southern Africa.The ICA Commission on Maps and Society participated as its field of study often overlaps with that of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography.
