ICA News 60, June 2013, is now available from the ICA News section.
ICA just launched a new service, the eCARTO News!
Beneath the contemporary ICA-related entries at the ICA website and the excellent ICA News being edited by Igor Drecki, compiling relevant information about all ongoing activities within ICA, there are numerous activities, development, stories and issues outside the world of ICA – but maybe of interest to cartographers and GI scientists. Such stories, news and announcements can be found in journals, in media, on the Internet and even in newspapers.
Dr David Fraser, the former Chair of the ICA Commission on Education and a retired professor of RMIT University Melbourne, is assembling such news since years. He has made them available as email-based newsletter to the Commission members. We have invited him to share his compilation with the family of ICA from now on. David’s compilation will be a list of links, inviting you to explore what he has found for us. If you have any general cartography items of interest then please email them to the editor of eCARTO News.
I am looking forward to your responses to this new service. Please be aware, that all ICA-related topics will be covered in our existing proven instruments, especially the ICA News.
President of the International Cartographic Association
The Special Issue of the ICA News “50th Anniversary of ICA 2009” features the ICA birthday celebration, which was held in Bern, Switzerland. It includes pictures of all participants and summaries of the speeches. It can be downloaded in the ICA News section.
