Map Design Sessions at AAG 2012

The ICA Commission on Map Design will hold two sessions at the AAG in New York (February 24–28) in conjunction with the ICA Commission on Cognitive Issues in Visualization. These sessions provide an opportunity for participants and attendees to explore emerging issues in map design and begin to shape an agenda for the work of the Commission for the next four years. We very much encourage participation and emphasize the inclusivity of our approach to map design from traditional techniques to neo-cartography and beyond.

Papers will explore emerging cartographic design issues, the impact of the online and mobile revolution on cartography, geovisualization; infographics design; use of GIS as a cartographic design tool and new or reasserted methods to effectively visualize spatial information in map displays.
