Vice-President

Vice-President Pilar Sánchez-Ortiz Rodríguez

I discovered my passion for cartography while studying towards my degree in Technical Engineering in Topography at the Polytechnic University of Madrid. Since then, and throughout my 25 years of trajectory at the National Geographic Institute of Spain, I have been fortunate to live off and for cartography. In this sense, I have developed most of my professional career within the fields of atlas and thematic cartography. I am Head of the Thematic Cartography and National Atlas Department, as well as Secretary General of the Spanish Society for Cartography. In consonance with my professional commitments, my main goal within the ICA will be to foster the application of rigorous cartography in order to make it more accessible, useful, attractive and amusing for its users.
