National Geographic Cartography Award Winner

The National Geographic Society sponsors several awards for cartography students through cartographic societies. 2007’s winner of the National Geographic Award in Mapping, awarded to undergraduate and Master’s-level students through the Association of American Geographers, is Cassie Hansen of the University of Nevada, Reno. She won for a striking map of the Mount Shasta area — and got written up by her home-town paper, the Mount Shasta Herald. Via GeoCarta.
