In partnership with the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Geodesy, the ICA Commission on Mountain Cartography is organizing its 11th ICA Mountain Cartography Workshop on the island of Hvar, Croatia. From May 21–25, 2018, we invite you to this beautiful venue in the Adriatic Sea and welcome you for numerous interesting excursions. The workshop will be hosted in hotels Pharos and Amfora in one of the most popular tourist destinations in Croatia – the city of Hvar.
The ICA Mountain Cartography Workshop brings together cartographers, geographers and others who want to discuss the current developments in mountain cartography and spatial data analysis and representations related to mountain environments. Main conference topics are (but not limited to):
- Mapping for outdoor activities in mountains
- Mapping and GIS of mountainous areas
- Physical and topographic mapping
- Relief representation
- Visualisation of mountain dynamics
- Interactive atlases
- New media applications
- Glacier movement
- Rock representation
Different presentation types are possible, from classic research papers to live software demonstrations and map discussions. With visits to the Hvar Observatory, St. Nikola and Pakleni Islands, the workshop includes outdoor thematic excursions, too.
Along with traditionally interesting scientific and professional programme and exchange of experiences among mountain cartographers from the whole world, there are many options for those interested for hiking and kayaking, local cuisine, charming beaches, historical sites or just strolling through the streets of the ancient Pharos. Our diversified programme with complementary activities will meet everyone’s interests.
