Brief History: The Institute of Mathematical Geography (IMaGe) was founded (by the current Director) in 1983 and licensed to conduct business in Washtenaw County, Michigan, in 1985. Throughout its 20 plus year history, it has been a leader in the dissemination of geographical and mathematical materials using current technology. Early works of IMaGe were noted in Science and in Science News (see Press section of this site). Later work has been honored with notice from the Pirelli INTERNETional Award, first for IMaGe's electronic journal, Solstice, as a "semi-finalist" in 2001, and later as a semi-finalist for one article in Solstice in 2003. IMaGe authors have also been privileged to receive a number of awards for other work (including a Pirelli "finalist" designation). See the Awards page to view these honors.
