Vice-President 2011–2015

Vice-Vice-President Paulo Menezes

In 1977 I obtained an Engineer of Geodesy and Topography degree from the Brazilian Military Institute of Engineering, while working on several Amazonian mapping projects. I completed my MSc in digital cartography in 1987 and in 1994 I moved to the Geography Department at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. As Assistant Professor and Head of the Laboratory of Cartography, I was in charge of digital cartography, GIS, historical and thematic cartography programmes. In 2000 I completed my PhD in geography and took the position of Senior Professor. I am also a cartography consultant, working with private and government organizations. I am Vice President of the Brazilian Society of Cartography, Brazilian National Representative to ICA and ICA Vice President.
