The overall winner of the International Map Industry Association (IMIA) regional map awards this year was the Millennium House Australia entry Earth Platinum World Atlas published by Gordon Cheers. The Atlas will be the IMIA Asia Pacific region entry into the IMIA Global Map Awards to be held in Cambridge MA, USA in September. This magnificent Atlas is truly amazing standing 6 feet high x 9 feet wide when opened.

Over 60 cartographers from around the world worked on this fantastic atlas, with many IMIA member cartographers (and Cartotalkers) involved.

On behalf of Avenza I would like to congratulate Gordon Cheers and all the folks at Millennium House as well as all the fine cartographers who participated in created this amazing atlas. I would also like to make a self-serving comment that in our own way Avenza contributed to this atlas as well and share an email I received last week from Gordon:

"Dear Ted,
We share in the award as it was your software that many of our cartographers used to produce the pages.

What an ATLAS!!!! Alas only 31 copies and that too priced at $10000 each. So no chance seeing it in any library in India. It will be a good idea to know who all have bought these copies. May be a copy must have been ordered by the ET, no not Economic Times, but Extra Terrestrials..... :unsure: .....
