Diploma for outstanding services for Ramón Lorenzo

Ramon Lorenzo has performed a double task in ICA for the past 4 years – not only was he the conference director, supported by his wife Isabel, but he has also had a specific and arduous tasks as Vice-President, as he was made responsible in the Executive Committee for the professional practice field. This double task proved to be extremely beneficial for the ICA and ICC, as in a way it put our feet back on the ground and strengthened the link with professional practitioners, such as hydrographers and topographers, that got a bit out of sight by an undue emphasis on academic work. This was translated by Ramon into the organization of workshops and the incorporation of sessions on practical cartography, even if at the same time he organized sessions on GPS, Galileo and Space cartography.

As conference director, Ramon has been able to motivate a large group of volunteers to perform, and by a continued strong effort has been able to get a large number of categories of cartographers and Geographic Information specialists to A Coruna. He has highlighted the societal impact of our profession and has been the perfect ambassador of our profession, both in Spain and the World.

Therefore the Executive Committee awards him the diploma for outstanding services to ICA.
