Happy Birthday MAPPS!

Posted By Nick Palatiello, Thursday, July 12, 2012
On this date July 12, 1982 a small group of private sector mapping firm principals and owners gathered at a hotel near O'Hare Airport in Chicago, IL to discuss the need for an association to represent firms engaged in photogrammetry and related activities. The meeting was made necessary by the recent dissolution of the Legislative Council for Photogrammetry. At that meeting, it was decided to form a new organization, the Management Association for Private Photogrammetric Surveyors, known today as "MAPPS".

Can you name any of the firms, or individuals, who were at that meeting?
