CET Workshop Opportunities

GIS/Cartography workshops have been successfully organised and conducted in Iran (2009), Indonesia (2010) and Viet Nam (2010), by the CET, on behalf of the International Cartographic Association. An outline of the workshop conditions and format can be found at http://lazarus.elte.hu/cet/workshop/overview.pdf

It may be that such a workshop would benefit GIS officers, cartographers and students in your country. I would like to know if you are interested in co-organising a workshop in your country in 2012 (or 2013) at a mutually acceptable time.

The workshops can be held in up to three, one week, parts. Each part is presented by two people, ideally in a computer laboratory, allowing for hands-on practical exercises to be undertaken by all participants.

Mountain Cartography Workshop in New Zealand in September

The next Mountain Cartography Workshop will be held in New Zealand near Taurewa, adjacent to the Tongariro National Park south of Auckland (North Island) between 1 and 5 September 2012.

The theme of the Workshop is Mapping Mountain Dynamics: from glaciers to volcanoes, in recognition of the unique natural environment of the host country New Zealand. The Workshop will focus on current developments in mountain cartography and present state of the art approaches to cartographic representations in large scale topographic mapping, symbolization and map design, as well as discuss technological issues, map use and links with Location-based Services (LBS).

Abstract submissions are welcome on any topic relating to mountain cartography, large scale topographic mapping, visualization of mountainous landscapes and artistic renderings and representations of terrain, and covering work of an academic and/or professional nature. Further details can be found on the invitation page.
