International Cartographic Conference (ICC) 2021

Pre-Conference Workshop

Geospatial Semantics and Cartography

ICC 2021 – International Cartographic Conference

A joint event of the Commissions on Geospatial Semantics with those on Spatial Data Infrastructures and Standards, Cognitive Issues in Geographic Information Visualization, and Open Source Geospatial Technologies called "Sharing Cartographic Knowledge" was held for the morning. Topics of discussion focused on multi-lingual cartographic terminology and making cartographic knowledge accessible to software developers.  

Following the joint discussions, the focus of the afternoon workshop were topics of geospatial semantics and ontology. The workshop was held in a hybrid format allowing broad participation.
