Brazil – 27th International Cartographic Conference
Aug 23 – Aug 28 all-day

The 27th International Cartographic Conference will take place in Rio de Janeiro,Brazil in 2015!
This is a unique opportunity to meet colleagues, present your work,exchange ideas, display your cartographic products, get connected with the global community of cartography and GI science and have a good time in one of the most famous cities of the world. Why is this a great opportunity? Simply because the fields of Cartography and Geoinformation Science are becoming more relevant than ever. Modern Cartography is a key to mankind. Without maps we would be “spatially blind”. Knowledge about spatial relations and location of objects is extremely important for enabling economic development, managing and administering land, handling disasters and crisis situations or simply to show individuals the best way to get to a specific place. Cartography is also the most contemporary. New and innovative technologies have an important impact into what cartographers are doing. Maps can be derived automatically from geodata acquisition methods such as laser scanning, remote sensing or sensor-networks. Smart models of geodata can be built, allowing an in-depth analysis of structures and patterns. A whole range of presentation forms is available nowadays, from maps on mobile phones all the way to geoinformation in the form of Augmented Reality presentations.
