Old maps in geography and cartography: A special issue of Acta geographica Slovenica

The Slovenian scientific journal Acta geographica Slovenica has published a special issue entitled Old maps in geography and cartography. This special issue (volume 63, issue 2) in five articles deals with historical cartography, and sheds light on the production, use and significance of old maps of Slovenian territory and Central Europe since the 16th century. These maps provide valuable resources for geographical research and are a visual parallel for understanding the history of the region.

Acta geographica Slovenica is a research journal for geography and related disciplines published by the Anton Melik Geographical Institute of the Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts. It has been published since 1952 and is the highest-ranking SCI- and Scopus-indexed geographical journal in Slovenia with an impact factor. Acta geographica Slovenica publishes original research articles from all fields of geography and related disciplines (such as history, cartography, climatology, hydrology, and geology). The journal provides an excellent forum for the discussion of new aspects of theory, methods and research results, especially in Central, Eastern and South-eastern Europe.

We recommend this special issue of Acta geographica Slovenica to researchers studying ancient maps, students of cartography, history and geography, and anyone interested in the historical, geographical, and societal insights that cartographic data provides.
