Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cartography has undergone dramatic changes in recent years. In less than 30 years, traditional cartographic technologies have virtually disappeared. At the same time, spatial data and visualization of such data are ubiquitous and, due to emerging new digital technologies, cartography has undergone a process of democratization. This development opens new paths of distributing spatial information, even though established principles of symbolization and mapping techniques are still essential for effective cartographic communication.

Currently, cartography is facing new challenges, such as displaying complex spatial data on mobile devises, variable scales, sound or 3D visualization, to name just a few.

You are invited to contribute to this Special Issue of the International Journal for Geo-Information which is focusing on recent developments in cartography and display technologies. Contributions should be of theoretical or empirical nature, highlighting new, innovative or thought-provoking aspects of cartography and display technologies.

Dr. Julia Siemer
