The O. M. Miller Cartographic Medal was founded by the AGS Council in 1968 for outstanding contributions in the field of cartography or geodesy. It was named for Mr. Miller who had recently retired from the AGS staff after 46 years. Mr. Miller was responsible for initiating a School of Surveying at the Society. His work brought to geographical science new map projections, original survey methods and instrumentation, pioneer developments in aerial photography and photogrammetry and new cartographic techniques.
