The International Cartographic Association’s Commission on the History of Cartography and the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin (Berlin State Library) will jointly host the 9th International Symposium on the History of Cartography on the topic of The Surveying Turn in Cartography: Revolutionizing Maps & Charts in the 18th and 19th Centuries on 24-26 October 2022.
The joint organizers encourage contributions investigating the global “surveying turn” in cartography, hinting to the increasing professionalization and mechanization to gather base data for drawing ‘ever truer to nature’ maps, especially during, but not limited to, the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
