GeoCart 2010 is only 11 days away

It is almost time to meet cartographers from New Zealand and rest of the world again at GeoCart. This is fifth conference (I have missed the first two) and the theme of this one is:

Cartographies of Tomorrow: Mapping in a mashed-up world

As before there are keynote speakers from all over the world including:

  • Cynthia Brewer, Pennsylvania State University, USA
  • Manfred Buchroithner, TU Dresden, Germany
  • William Cartwright, RMIT University, Australia, President of the ICA
  • Phil Allen, GeoSmart, New Zealand
  • David Crossman, Royal New Zealand Navy, New Zealand
  • Colin MacDonald, LINZ, New Zealand

At last GeoCart in 2008 I had a privilege to listen William Cartwright, David DiBiase and others. I am really looking forward to hear Cynthia's keynote and even more to be in the "Map Design with ArcGIS workshop" . Workshop will be held before GeoCart, from 30-31 of this month. This will be a nice opportunity to focus on cartography rather then on geodatabase or other technical aspects of GIS.

I'll post more on GeoCart and the workshop when it starts. See you there.
