Description

Kappa Map Group (KMG) was formed in early 2011 to provide a single umbrella over our growing family of map brands. These brands include a complete selection of easier-to-read and full size, mid-size, and pocket US Road Atlases, paper and laminated street, state, national and world maps, educational wall and desk maps, and custom and pre-formatted wall maps. With brands extending as far back as 1816, Kappa Map Group, is a recognized leader in the publishing of printed map products in North America. KMG provides the largest selection of map titles of any US map publisher.

Kappa Map Group brands:

Hagstrom: In 1816 Andrew Hagstrom opened a drafting business in lower Manhattan. Hagstrom produced a simple map to guide people to his new office. Within 10 years Hagstrom Map Company had developed maps of all 5 NYC boroughs.

American Map: American Map began creating its line of authoritative maps and atlases in 1923. American's maps have been relied upon by travelers throughout the U.S. for years.

Mapsco: In 1948 Milton Boyd Keith, a frustrated Dallas florist tired of having his delivery drivers get lost, began his search for an accurate up-to-date map source. Unable to find such maps Keith and his store manager, Lily Kendrick, began researching and designing hand-drawn maps that anyone could use. The first commercial edition of a MAPSCO Street Guide was published in 1952. Since then MAPSCO has become a leading maker of maps for the Texas, New Mexico and Colorado areas.

ADC - The Map People: ADC began in 1956 when photographer Richard Robertson, who earned his living photographing houses for sale in Northern Virginia, began mapping out the locations. Robertson's business grew to produce the most well-known map and atlas brand in the region.

Universal Map: In 1976 Universal Map Enterprises was founded in the wake of the oil embargo. Gas shortages during the embargo virtually halted travel in the U.S., and as a result, the oil companies suspended their free map programs. Universal Map stepped into the void with its map vending machines, and over the years, has built one of the largest collections of maps available for the United States.
