ICA President Menno-Jan Kraak

Working with maps is my passion. As Professor at the University of Twente, I teach about maps and do research to find new cartographic representations to visualize time. Throughout my career, I have been active in professional organizations, first in the Netherlands only and later internationally. The ICA has been part of my professional life for a long time. I attended my first International Cartographic Conference in 1989. Since 1995 I have played a more formal role, first as Co-chair and later Chair of the Commission on Visualization. Between 2007 and 2015 I acted as Vice President of ICA. For the next four years it is a privilege to serve as President of our wonderful organizations. My motto is: Let’s make the world a better place with maps.
