Working with maps is my passion. As Professor at Twente University I teach about them 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 of the Commission on Visualization and since 2007 as Vice President of ICA. ICA brings me knowledge and a network of like-minded friends. What I try to bring to ICA is my (local) knowledge, my drive and energy to organize events, and enthusiasm to stimulate other (young) cartographers.
