The International Cartographic Association invited students, young cartographers and other mapping enthusiasts to express their vision on modern cartography through the development of a video answering a call for videos earlier this year. It was envisaged that the video would focus on content like “how cartography relates to situations in daily life” and “what is the role of cartographers”.
The ICA Executive Committee judged the entries on originality, creativity, adherence to the theme and decided on Mr Jeff Welter’s entry as winner of the ICA Video competition 2012 – congratulations! You can have a look at Jeff’s video here:
Any comment is welcome as well as eventually further ideas on how to promote the importance and relevance of cartography in modern daily life, either on a global or on a private scale.
