Summary

A wealth of unpublished or unstructured educational materials for all aspects of cartographic instruction are widely dispersed and unnecessarily difficult to obtain. The Cartography Assistance Brochures Project of the Cartography Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers (AAG), the North American Cartographic Information Society, and related organizations aims to improve cartographic instruction. A project description is included along with abstracts of papers presented at various AAG conferences; they are: "The Ten Commandments of Contour Lines and Other Educational Aids about Isolines" (Paul S. Anderson); "Experiential Exercises for Map Readers" (Dennis Fitzsimons); "Map Use Instruction: Measurement of Geographic Features and Associations" (Alan M. MacEachren);"An Exercise in Map Procurement" (Jeffrey C. Patton); "Instruction Aids for Thematic Cartography" (James R. Wray); "Contents and Methods in Map Appreciation Courses" (Paul S. Anderson); "Teaching Map Reading Through a Competitive Tournament" (Laurence W. Carstensen); "Large Classes in Map Use: Bureaucracy, Logistics, and Testing" (Phillip Gersmehl); "Role of Cartographic Values and Ethics in Map Appreciation" (Phillip Muehrcke); "Ongoing Activities to Facilitate Access to Supplementary Materials for Cartographic Education" (Paul S. Anderson); "Videodiscs and Surrogate Travel: Applications in the Instruction of Map Use" (Laurence W. Carstensen); "Map Position Finding from Nonmotion Photographic Images" (Allen B. Cox); "Practical Map Use Exercises" (Dennis Fitzsimons); "Integrating Geographic and Cartographic Concepts in Map Use Instruction" (Alan M. MacEachren); "Map Skills in the North Carolina Curriculum: Exercises for 4th Graders" (Michael W. Mayfield, Jeffrey C. Patton, Joseph W.
