Advertising poster with Edinburgh Castle and a carJoin AGI Members for a guided tour of the National Library of Scotland exhibition “Putting Scotland On the Map”. Staff from the library will guide members around this fantastic exhibition which tells the story of one of Scotland’s most influential map-making firms, John Bartholomew & Son.

Bartholomew produced well-loved maps for every occasion, and in the process changed the face of Scottish map-making forever.

This event will be a great opportunity to visit the exhibition with like-minded geo-enthusiasts and meet other AGI members. Following the tour, we will move onto a local pub for networking drinks. We will announce further details nearer the time.

National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh – 10 April 2013 from 6pm

The event is free for AGI members and you can book online now:
