National Geographic Maps: News from Evergreen

In response to competition from the online mapping services, National Geographic Maps is restructuring, moving away from producing general-interest maps and towards specific niches, such as recreation, emergency, geology and other field work, the Denver Business Journal reports (via All Points Blog and GeoCarta). NG Maps, a taxable subsidiary of the Society, is largely based in Evergreen, Colorado, thanks to its heritage: National Geographic bought Evergreen-based mapmaker Trails Illustrated in 1997 and folded it into its operations.
