The W.E. Upjohn Center for the Study of Geographical Change at Western Michigan University was recently recognized by the International Map Industry Association for its cartographic contributions. The center was honored for two series of maps, each of which can be used on devices that support GPS technology. "Nobody can deny there has been a lot of change in the last 200 years," said David Dickason, an emeritus professor of geography at the university. "The only record we have is maps."
