Moscow State University of Geodesy and Cartography (MIIGAiK) joins the Map Year celebrations! Here is a message from local IMY coordinator Irina Petrovna Karachevtseva:
Our university was established in 1779. It is one of the oldest institutions in the field of Geodesy and Cartography. MIIGAiK has a long history and a lot of mapping traditions, so we are very pleased to welcome the International Map Year (IMY)!
On the occasion of this event MIIGAiK Extraterrestrial Laboratory (MExLab) have printed a series of planetary maps under support of the Russian Science Foundation and organized a cartographic exhibition. We are very proud to continue such useful work as Cartography. And we are happy that the events like IMY help us to convey the importance of our work to others and share experiences with cartographers worldwide.
Thank you from Russia for Map Year organization!
