In the tradition of pre-conference workshops in association with the International Cartographic Conference (ICC) the ICA Commission on Generalisation and Multiple Representation will organise a workshop in Washington, United States, 1–2 July, 2017.
The workshop will explore new challenges and solutions in the domain of automated generalisation. A special focus will be set on approaches to generalise location-based social media data. The first day (1 July 2017) will be carried out as a regular workshop of the ICA Commission on Generalisation and Multiple Representation. For the second day we have the aim to have combined sessions with ICA Commission on Geospatial Analysis and Modeling and ICA Commission on Location-based Services on topics related to Scalability and Abstraction of Location-based Social Media Data and Tracking Data.
The challenges of research in Generalisation and Multiple Representation draws upon researchers and practitioners alike, working in the fields of on-demand mapping, geovisual analysis, multiple representations, data integration and generalisation of geographic information. Participants of the workshop are invited to submit research papers or positions papers.
