Despite Wisconsin's rich history, no historical atlas has been produced in the state since 1878. Wisconsin's Past and Present: A Historical Atlas, created by the Wisconsin Cartographers' Guild, has filled this void with a fascinating and colorful portrait of the state's complex development. This guide, produced to mark 150 years of statehood, provides a lasting resource for map lovers and history buffs, and for everyone interested in Wisconsin's heritage. The atlas features historical and geographical data, including full-color maps, descriptive text, photos, and illustrations.
The Wisconsin Cartographers' Guild, founded in 1996, is an association of professional freelance mapmakers with a total of forty years of experience in the craft and complementary backgrounds in thematic cartography, geography, history, art, science, and computer graphics. Members pool their skills and resources to produce maps, illustrations, and other educational materials. The Wisconsin Cartographers' Guild is Marily Crews-Nelson, Laura Exner, Michael Gallagher, Zoltan Grossman, Amelia Janes, and Jeffry Maas. "
