Geographical Society of Finland

Geographical Society of Finland is a community of geographers and those interested in geography. The Society traces its origins back to 1888, when two organizations, the Geographical Society of Finland and Finnish Geographical Association, were founded. They were united into a single organization in 1921. The Society's purpose is to promote research in geography and related sciences at home and abroad. The Society's official languages are Finnish and Swedish.

The Society had 1,067 members at the end of 2003, including 6 honorary members and 61 corresponding members. The Society arranges an annual meeting, inviting visiting speakers from aboard. Public lectures are arranged on topics of current interest.

Geographical Society of Finland publishes two journals.

TERRA is the leading Finnish- and Swedish-language geographical quarterly in Finland. It contains articles, review articles and discussion, book reviews, news and information for Finnish geographers and others interested in geography.

FENNIA is published twice a year chiefly in English. Its issues consist of original research articles. Special consideration is given to manuscripts addressing the northern aspect.

ATLAS OF FINLAND introduces the reader to the natural environment, population, economy, society and cultural life of Finland. Six editions have been published. The first of them, published in 1899, was the first national atlas in the world. Further editions came out in 1910, 1925, 1960, 1977-1994 (a series of 26 folios devoted to specific topics) and in 1999 to celebrate the volume's 100th anniversary. An updated and expanded English-language version of the sixth edition was published as a special issue of FENNIA and as an attached CD-Rom in November, 2002 (Volume 180: 1-2).
