The formation of the United Internation Mapper's Federation was possibly a major event in Mapping History. The UIMF formed as a result of several conflicts in the Mapping Community because of high tension between the European Mapper's Union and other groups against them. Two mappers (Galactic Mapping and Nigerian Mapping) decided to make a group designed to give refuge to those caught in the cross-fire and try to allow mappers to map without any drama.

Ever since it's formation, the UIMF has played a vital role in allowing mappers to free map without the drama that has been haunting the community for a time. They accept anybody, and everybody! Till this date, the UIMF is one of the most crucial communities, though it may not seem so, they were and may continue to be.
