On Saturday, March 18, 2017, members and guests of the Washington Map Society met at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington D.C. to learn how maps are integrated within an exhibit environment. The tour was led by Daniel Cole, who has served as the Research Cartographer for the Smithsonian since 1986 and as the Institution's GIS Coordinator since 1990. The field trip visited two exhibits with discussions about the maps involved in each: "The Great Inka Road: Engineering an Empire" and "Nation to Nation: Treaties Between the United States and American Indian Nations."
