Geographia Ltd. was a London-based publisher of maps, map board games, globes and atlases from the early 1900s to the late 1980s. Thereafter, it was eventually absorbed into Collins Bartholomew, the cartographic division of HarperCollins.

Geographia was founded by Alexander Gross (1879-1958), 'a truculent Hungarian immigrant.' The firm manufactured atlases and street maps of all major cities in the United Kingdom, the most popular of which was the Greater London Street Atlas and its New York office produced street guides for American cities in the mid 20th century.
