11th Mountain Cartography Workshop

The ICA Commission on Mountain Cartography and the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Geodesy are pleased to announce the 11th Mountain Cartography Workshop.

It will be held on the island of Hvar, Croatia, from the 21st to the 25th of May 2018. Venues of the workshop are Hotel Pharos and Hotel Amfora in the City of Hvar.

The Mountain Cartography Workshop brings together cartographers, geographers and others who want to discuss the current developments in mountain cartography and spatial data analysis and representations related to mountain environments.

The theme of the Workshop is Mapping for Outdoor Activities in Mountains since Croatia is a popular destination for many outdoor activities and adventures. However, submitted papers, presentations and panels can deal with any aspect of mountain cartography, or map data related to mountain environments. Different presentation types are possible, from classic research papers to live software demonstrations and map discussions.

Our Organizing Committee warmly invites you to participate in the Mountain Cartography Workshop. Looking forward to meeting you on Hvar, a “mountain” in the Adriatic Sea.
