President’s Blog: Call for papers for ICC2015


The most important date in 2015 for all cartographers and GI scientists is 23–28 August 2015, when the International Cartographic Conference will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The deadline for submissions has been extended to 15 November 2014!

This is to remind all of us working in cartography and GI Science to prepare our papers or abstracts accordingly, so that we can share our concepts, ideas and results at the conference. You are able to indicate, if you want your submission to be reviewed as full paper and thus qualify eventually for a journal or book publication as well as for a presentation or you prefer a review based on the abstract and qualify for the presentation sessions and proceedings.

Please check out all details on www.icc2015.org

Whatever you are up for, it is most important, that all of us are contributing actively by submitting papers and abstracts, so that the conference can be a true platform of those working in cartography and GIScience and reflect the relevance, attractiveness and innovative character of our domain.

President’s Blog: A national day for cartography

There is a country in the world, where cartography has its own national day. At the annual “Dia de Cartografo” on May 6 the importance of maps and mapping for environmental issues, urban planning, tourism, disaster management or more general for supporting decision-making in the country is celebrated.

The country which celebrates such a day once a year is Brasil. This national day for cartography is an excellent possibility to make everybody aware of the importance and significance of cartography. The cartographic community in Brasil, steered by the Brasilian Cartographic Society, is active in various innovative ways beyond this national day.

It is good news, that the international cartographic community can be a guest of Brasil at the International Cartographic Conference 2015 in Rio de Janeiro, 23–28 August 2015!
