Georg Gartner

I am Professor of Cartography at Vienna University of Technology, Austria. I have always felt privileged working in cartography, a discipline with so many interesting challenges and possibilities. It is this passion which I would like to commit to ICA and my Presidency. I see cartography as a modern, relevant and attractive discipline, very gratifying personally and professionally. My experiences with ICA have proven to be rewarding, as I found it useful and stimulating to meet and cooperate with so many colleagues who share the passion and interest in cartography and maps. This was particularly true during my involvement in the Commission on Maps and the Internet and other Commissions, the ICA Executive Committee 2007-2011 and at the events like the International Cartographic Conferences.

      Dear Mr. Fiala,
      Sorry, we can’t help you with this inquiry. “Laicization cartography” is not a general term in the field of cartography. I think you would rather have to search for maps in the specific historic field.
      Best regards, Manuela
