Updates to historical information on the ICA website

25 Years of ICA. 1959–1984. By Ferdinand J. Ormeling Sr. PDF, 13 MB.

25 Years of ICA. 1959–1984. By Ferdinand J. Ormeling Sr., PDF, 13 MB.

The ICA website’s “historical section” was updated.

The awards pages now include laudations where they are relevant. Winners of ICA travel awards and of the Children’s World Map Drawing Competition are not only listed, but some photos are linked.

The list of commissions and working groups of the former ICA General Assembly periods are also expanded. A new section of obituaries (based on former ICA News information) was also created. The full list of ICA Executive Committees is also available.

Ferdinand Ormeling’s book on the 25 years International Cartographic Association 1959–1984 was scanned and converted to text using optical character recognition. It is available on the history page.

Some information is still missing – we invite you to inform us about your knowledge. We are looking forward to your contributions: corrections and photographs are very welcome.

President’s Blog: Relaunch of the ICA website

Georg Gartner

Georg Gartner,
ICA President

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the first entry in the new president’s blog of the relaunched website of the International Cartographic Association. Thanks to the efforts of the ICA Webmasters Manuela Schmidt and Felix Ortag this place evolved to be a more contemporary web presence.

This website is meant as a modern tool for getting information about ICA and all its activities as well as allowing for more interactive and dynamic tools reflecting opinions, comments and discussions.  We are all interested in having tools available which support our professional lifes as cartographers and assist us in distributing and linking ideas, results and opinions about maps, cartography and ICA. With this relaunched website we hope to be able to meet these needs.

I would like to invite all of you to stay connected with ICA by taking advantage of the offered options on the website including email-subscription, RSS or Twitter. I am also looking forward to comments and suggestions for developing the website further.

In the picture above you can see the new executive committee together with the new commission chairs. We finally managed to incorporate all necessary changes into the ICA website:
