Working Group on Marine Cartography

  • Establish a cohort of interested members on the WG on Marine Cartography, working to consolidate the WG with the longer term aim of re-establishing an ICA Marine Cartography Commission by the time of ICA General Assembly 2019.
  • Maintain a positive ICA "voice" as the expert voice of cartography within the maritime industry.
  • Provide a focus group within ICA for harnessing authoritative cartographic advice pertaining to the maritime world, such as, but not exclusively, in the areas of navigation, ocean management and the depiction of ocean systems.
  • Foster quality mapping and cartographic modelling, including state-of-the-art visualization technologies, geospatial processing and publishing tools, for nautical charts and ECDIS systems.
  • Cooperate at the scientific level with the IHO for the development of Marine Spatial Data Infrastructures, standards and bathymetric data quality.
  • Articulate cartographic issues arising in the marine cartography industry sector and the ICA Commissions, suggesting areas where ICA cartographic expertise and research can be brought to bear on a specific issue or topic.
  • Study the development of cartographic influence with special reference as a primary aid to the management of coastal regions of the world, including critical maritime incidents.
  • Provide appropriate qualified and/or experienced members representing ICA membership (two persons) on the FIG/IHO/ICA IBSC.
  • Liaise with the CoastGIS Scientific Committee (NB: the previous ICA Commission on Marine Cartography was a founding partner in the CoastGIS series of symposia).
  • Liaise with the IGU Commission on Coastal Systems.
