Chair Kenneth Field and Co-Chair Alexander Kent represented the Commission on Map Design at a meeting of the ICA Executive Committee and Commission Chairs in Vienna 24/25th November. The meeting provided an excellent forum for the exchange of ideas on how the work of the ICA Commissions should be shaped for the next four years. New ICA President Georg Gartner outlined his vision for the period and enabled us to explore a wide range of exciting opportunities and challenges. Both Ken and Alex were able to develop a clearer idea for the successful operation of the new Commission. Core to the initial work will be to further develop the web site, membership and begin to outline strategy and content to support map design more widely.
