Federal Cartographic (formerly the Federal Cartographic Magazine and branded also as FED CARTO) is the official magazine of the Federal Cartographic Society. It has been published continuously since its first issue in 1982, nine months after the Society itself was conceived. It primarily contains articles about mapmaking, geography, history, and world culture. The magazine is known for its thick, square biased format with an emphasis on borders and its haphazard use of doctored photographs.
