The International Cartographic Association (ICA) is pleased to invite you to the Second International Symposium on Service-Oriented Mapping (SOMAP)
in Potsdam from 6–8 October 2014 in Vienna, Austria from 26–28 November 2014.
This symposium is coorganised by four ICA Commissions:
- Commission on Map Production and Geobusiness
- Commission on GeoVisualization
- Commission on Maps and the Internet
- Commission on Open Source Geospatial Technologies
Geospatial data and services are the main building blocks for geospatial infrastructures and fundamental to service-oriented mapping and realtime applications. Geospatial infrastructures make use of different paradigms: maintaining, sharing and use (instead of collect and own). Developments in these paradigms are leading to evolutions in availability and accessibility of geospatial data and services coupled with the added value of geospatial products and applications in the modern geospatial production environment.
Geospatial trends are constantly growing and developing such as sensor networks, realtime processing, volunteered geographic information, open governmental data, in-situ geospatial processing and striking visualization techniques creating many new possibilities but also new restrictions and problems based on massiveness, heterogeneity and contextual flexibility. Challenges like handling big data, aggregate different sources, standards for a homogenuous data, and disappearing sources/content are growing.
SOMAP2014 is a venue that brings together experts from research, government, non-governmental organisations, standardization bodies and industry to present, document and discuss trends in service-based mapping, which covers delivery, processing, integration, analysis, collaboration as well as visualization of geospatial data and services.
ICA Commission on Map Production and Geobusiness
The Art and Cartography Commission is organizing a colloquy (in French) entitled “Cartographier les récits : enjeux méthodologiques et technologiques” (Montréal, May 12–13, 2014). Deadline to submit an abstract (in French) for this event is January 31, 2014.

Dear Colleagues and friends:
As a collaboration among ISPRS, IGU and ICA, we are going to organize a joint Workshop on Borderlands Modeling and Understanding for Global Sustainability. It will be organized from December 5 to 6, 2013, in Beijing. The main purpose is to promote inter-disciplinary scientific research and academic exchange on the application of imagery and geo-information in borderlands understanding. Please check out the website or read the call for paper PDF.
May I ask you to have a look at the announcement and pass this information to your colleagues and students as well as those people who might be interested?
Please allow me to bother you with news of the ICA Commission on Map Production and Geobusiness – some SOMAP news for 2013:
- The book on Service-Oriented Mapping 2012 is available in the webshop of our publisher.
- We will have a joint commission activity before the International Cartographic Conference 2013 in Dresden.
We call for participation in the 16th Generalisation Workshop jointly organised by the ICA Commission on Generalisation and Multiple Representation and the ICA Commission on Map Production and Geo-Business. The workshop will be held in Dresden, Germany, 23–24 August 2013, prior to the International Cartographic Conference. Participation and attendance at the two day workshop requires submission of research papers or position papers.
Key dates are:
- 15 March 2013: deadline for submission of short papers (limit 3000 words, and 8 pages including figures)
- 25 April 2013: notification of acceptance of paper for presentation (& invitation)
- 15 August 2013: deadline for submission of revised papers
- 23 and 24 August 2013: Workshop Please register via mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or at the commission website
All the best greetings from Vienna,
We would like to inform you about the call for papers for the
ICA Workshop on Street Networks and Transport
Pre-Conference Symposium to ICC2013
23 August 2013 @ the Dresden University of Technology, Germany
The ICA Commissions on Cartography and Children, Education and Training, Maps and Graphics for Blind and Partially Sighted People and Planetary Cartography have the pleasure to invite you to a one day joint symposium on August 23.
The aim of the symposium – as expressed by the title – is to give an opportunity to the members of the four commissions (and participants in general) to share and learn about the research in the topics covered by the commissions during the last years. This will be a one-day programme divided into four sessions, each of them dedicated to one of the participating commissions.
The Call for Papers is open until April 26.
Please visit the symposium website for more information: http://lazarus.elte.hu/jointsymposium2013/
If you have any question in relation to the event, please contact José Jesús Reyes Nunez.
